RSE - Curious 2021 - Delivering clean energy from space

12th August 2021 3:00 pm

The utility of solar power to deliver useful energy services is limited by the daily day-night cycle.

However, ultra-lightweight mirrors in Earth orbit could in principle reflect sunlight onto large solar power farms at dawn and dusk, when solar output is low but energy demand can be high. This event will discuss both the technical challenges associated with the development of orbiting solar reflectors and the regulatory issues associated with their future deployment.
