Factor Magazine :Power-generating drones to take wind energy to unprecedented heights

Lucy Ingham, journalist bij Factor Magazine in Londen, schreef een artikel over Ampyx Power na een bezoek aan de SkyTech Conference waar onze oprichter Richard Ruiterkamp een lezing gaf. Het artikel is in het Engels.

Drones are normally associated with high energy consumption and short battery times, but a Netherlands-based company could change all that with the development of power-generating drones.

Designed to generate energy at altitudes current wind turbines cannot operate at, the drones essentially replace the part of a turbine blade that generates 70% of the power, while removing the need for the rest of the turbine. Continue reading
