I’ve been looking for this link for ages. I’m not sure if an air ship is high altitude enough for such a thing though.
I’d say electrodynamic tether is probably the wrong way to go, that works best if you’re out in space and orbiting but it would be better to capture atmospheric electricity. There is in fact a huge voltage gradient when you go from low altitude to high altitude.. it’s what causes lightning, and although it’s difficult, due to the extremely low current, it is possible to capture that energy and it has been done.. i think there was a post on this forum a while back that mentioned it, but I can’t find any links to the experiments right now.
