Tidal Kites

A Swedish company called Minesto has invented unique underwater kites, or tidal turbines that produce energy. A lift force is created when the high tides hit the wings, which increases water flow into the turbines 10 times faster than with a low tide. The turbines convert this kinetic energy into electrical energy. The first installation is set for Summer of 2011 in the North Ireland seas.
