Watch: Makani’s First Offshore Energy Kite Flight
Makani flew its energy kite from a floating platform in the North Sea. Once commercialized, Makani’s kites have the potential to bring power to hundreds of millions of people living along the world’s coastlines where the wind is strong and steady, but the water is too deep to fix wind turbines to the ocean floor.
