Dec. 2, 2019                      Joe Faust   discussing the topic paper:
  • The paper's term of choice: HAWES high altitude wind energy systems.
  • "Section-II discusses types of HAWES i.e. ground based generation system and fly based generation system"
  • " Due to these reasons, harnessing the wind energy at high  altitudes is at  the nascent stages restricting it to the laboratories."  [Early 2017 paper]
