Space-Based Solar Power

In the future, vast solar power satellites may beam energy to the Earth from space. This is the first episode in my series “Resources from Space”. You can watch the other videos here: “Asteroid Mining”: “Mining the Moon”: “Beyond Sustainability”: “The Making of Resources from Space “: You can read more about resources from space,… Continue reading Space-Based Solar Power

Is Solar Power The Future Of Energy?

Solar is not a new energy technology, but its currently undergoing a revolution that could impact the future of energy. With dramatic progress in cost reduction whilst maintaining continal climb in efficiency, solar power is being adopted across the world at an astonishing rate. But how far can photovoltaics take us? How cheap can it… Continue reading Is Solar Power The Future Of Energy?
