Your specified challenges are invited:    Editor@UpperWindpower.com
  • What if the line breaks?
  • What can go wrong?            
  • Atmospheric electrical potentials at various altitudes in various weather changes?
  • Final cost of the energy when all system parts and operations are considered?
  • Safety?            Kites by Gomberg
  • Nanotech materials and devices will continue to impact possibilities in generating electricity from kite systems.
  • Blocking or preventing the return sector of the Savonious rotor from receiving drag; allow only the driving upper part of the rotor to be driven by the wind on the Magenn system.
  • Superconductivity
  • Are there ways to use kite systems to practically use atmospheric electricity?
  • As nanotech materials permit very low-leak kytoons to loft hung generators, then more can happen.
  • Demonstrations
  • Compare demonstrated systems
  • Compare successful systems with competing technologies
  • Airspace restrictions, collision with kite lines,
  • Double purposing kite systems with surveillance camera or communications antennae
