Energy production after Disaster: Zéphyr Solar

post-image
Bringing Electricity to Disaster Zones Zéphyr is a photovoltaic balloon and eco-friendly generator created by Karen Assaraf, Julie Dautel, and Cédric Tomissi. The balloon only requires water in order to inflate and can capture solar energy from as high as 165 feet (50 meters) in the air. The balloon is connected by a cable to a base, where the energy is stored. Its creators hope that it will bring power to areas struck by natural disasters

I see publicity around this in 2015 and wonder what's happened to it. More recently I see that the world’s first operations base for Airbus’s Zephyr Solar High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS) has been officially established at Wyndham Airfield in Western Australia.
