Energy from space
IP: 1.129.110.72


While playing golf this morning,I was thinking how we could solve our energy needs on this planet. This came to mind.

Space Solar vs Other Energy Sources
Other energy sources—such as hydro, terrestrial solar, and wind—are dependent on inconsistent and unpredictable environmental factors. Others such as the fossil-fuel generators rely on possibly non-sustainable fuel sources.

Space solar power, on the other hand, is unlimited, available 24 hours a day, and expected to last for another four billion or more years. The potential of generating electrical energy from space is so huge that it can provide continuous base load power (the minimum demand on an electrical over a 24 hour period) and meet future global energy requirements.



Advantages of a Space-Based Solar Power System
Sunshine in space is constant—unaffected by day/night cycles and weather conditions.
It does not emit greenhouse gases like coal, oil, and gas-based sources do, nor does it produce hazardous waste like nuclear plants.
Space solar harvesting doesn’t compete for farmland as does bio-fuels production.
The energy can be beamed to locations where it is required, even to remote places with no grid power. This eliminates the issues associated with long transmission lines.


How a Space Solar Power System Works
A typical setup will involve building a solar-based power station in space and a ground receiver on the Earth’s surface. The solar panels will generate the electrical energy, convert it into microwaves or a laser beam, and wirelessly transmit the energy to a ground receiver. The ground receiver will then convert the received energy into electricity.

What do you think?
William.
