CLOUD POTENTIAL AS THE BIGGEST SOURCE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY AND FRESH WATER

Alexander Baybikov
19 Raspletina Str., Bld. 2, Apt. 91, Moscow, 123060, Russia

RÉSUMÉ

Nikola Tesla's ingenious idea to use the potential of clouds as the biggest source of renewable energy on the Earth can be implemented by raising a water collection tank to the cloud height. The collection tank would be kept at the designated height by tethered balloons and aerodynamic forces. A special pipe would drain the collected water to an impulse turbine fitted with electric generator. The same process would provide pristine fresh water. Examples of technical implementation of low and average capacity pilot power plants are provided below.
