Description:

EnviroMission is an Australian company that intends to construct a massive solar tower between New South Wales and Victoria. Scheduled for completion in 2005, the energy producing tower is remarkable in a number of ways. Most notably, the tower will be about one kilometer tall, taller than any other manmade structure. Furthermore, it is not a conventional solar power installation, as it will not generate electricity directly from solar panels. Instead, it will heat the air at the base of the tower, and the resulting rush of air upward through the tower will turn large turbines. The EnviroMission Web site has a video animation of how the tower will look when it is completed, as well as plenty of information about its design and operation. Several news articles from around the world are also included that attest to the grandness of the project.
