Tiny robot was created by the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory in the USA – an amazing bit of microengineering. Carbon fiber and polyester make the minute wings and super tiny photovoltaic cells to power it. The solar cells generate about five volts of electricity, but that is boosted to 200 volts which is needed for liftoff by a tiny transformer.

La energía eólica favorece lograr ir más lejos en la costa, donde se producen vientos más rápidos y consistentes. Eso se traduce en una potencia exponencialmente mayor. Más del 80% del potencial eólico marino se encuentra en aguas a más de 60 metros, donde es económicamente menos atractivo construir directamente en el fondo marino. Las turbinas flotantes llenan ese vacío.
