Fireside Chats with Mike Williams - April 2015

Wireless electricity!

Popularized by Nikola Tesla at the turn of the 20th century, many of us have fantasized about a life with less chords. Transmitting electricity wirelessly presents some unique challenges, but the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency is working hard to develop the technology for their most ambitious project to date. Every month this column shines a light on the technology of our future- this installment of Fireside Chats' is on JAEA’s Space Solar Power Systems Project.

The SSPS project is a fascinating solution to Earth’s energy needs. Solar energy will be collected at a power plant in space and then wirelessly transmitted to Earth in the form of microwaves or laser beams. Collecting solar energy in space is more efficient than on Earth due to a few factors. A power plant in space is not affected by our atmosphere, weather, time of day, and seasons. As an added benefit, emissions in the form of CO2 are produced in space rather than inside our atmosphere.

If the SSPS project successfully advances wireless energy transmission technology, we may be able to accomplish additional industrial and commercial improvements. For example, this technology could allow us to send electricity to a remote region after a disaster or an area where there is not an electrical infrastructure such as Antarctica or a platform in the ocean. On a smaller scale, we may be able to create a better way to charge electric cars or other types of machines including Transformers

    I've been surfing online more than 3 hours nowadays, but I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made just right content material as you probably did, the net can be a lot more useful than ever before.
