These high-flying objects are in fact tethered blimps containing wind turbines to generate electricity for the city. Aside from being a rather brilliant way to harvest the stronger winds found at high altitudes, the blimps are evocative of the fish kites seen in some Miyazaki films. They are also real.

How do we get wind energy?
Wind turbines use blades to collect the wind’s kinetic energy. Wind flows over the blades creating lift (similar to the effect on airplane wings), which causes the blades to turn. The blades are connected to a drive shaft that turns an electric generator, which produces (generates) electricity.
How does a bladeless wind turbine work?
Basically, bladeless technology consists of a cylinder fixed vertically with an elastic rod. The cylinder oscillates on a wind range, which then generates electricity through an alternator system. In other words, it is a wind turbine which is not actually a turbine.
Will wind energy be used in the future?
The Wind Vision Report shows that wind can be a viable source of renewable electricity in all 50 states by 2050. Wind energy supports a strong domestic supply chain. Wind has the potential to support over 600,000 jobs in manufacturing, installation, maintenance, and supporting services by 2050.
How deep can floating wind turbines work?
The VolturnUS floating concrete hull technology can support wind turbines in water depths of 45 m or more.
How far can you see offshore wind turbines?
This preliminary study has clearly shown that even small offshore wind facilities of a few dozen turbines can be seen easily at distances exceeding 25 km ~15 mi! and that mod- erately sized facilities of 100 turbines are seen easily at distances of 35 km ~22 mi! or even farther, in a variety of weather and lighting …
