Takeaway: higher power

This is a new way to produce clean energy

It’s based on a phenomenon known as the Magnus effect

Helium makes this balloon lighter than air

Electric motors spin the balloon

The wind drags the spinning balloon up, pulling the cable

The cable drives the motor that generates electricity

Only 20% of produced energy is used to pull the balloon down

The result: clean and safe energy anywhere on the planet!
