Googling renewable energy

Elsewhere, he talks about some specific technologies that are drawing Google’s attention and investment, including high-altitude wind – perhaps very high-altitude.

“The other one that we’re looking at is high-altitude wind — ways to capture the stronger and steadier winds that are at 500 or 1,000 or 2,000 meters high, or potentially even up in the jet stream. Internally, we’ve been looking at taking traditional wind turbines and putting them on much taller towers so you can get to much stronger steadier winds,” he said.
