Independent and sustainable power supply from space

By the early 2030s, the first operating Power Beaming prototypes could be in use and capture sunlight in orbit and then beam it wirelessly down to Earth. This solar energy would then supply cities, factories, households and eventually aeroplanes with electricity on Earth.

In geostationary orbit about 36,000 kilometres above Earth, a solar panel the same size as one of its counterparts on Earth can generate significantly more electricity.

The technology can be designed to prevent harm to birds or people flying in aircraft by spreading the beam out over a wide area.
