Unlimited Alternate Energy Source, Using Energy Available in Space

Have you ever wondered what will happen to this planet when the electricity goes off........??
We are not able to tolerate even if the electricity goes off for a second!! Where from we get this energy which is always in high demand and for which the demand is increasing rapidly. Sources are many but feasibility comes to the account always. The renewable source is the best option for producing the electricity but when it comes to the supply the larger section of people it usually fails.

 Let me give you an idea what if we convert the solar energy at the outer space itself where it is available round the clock and send it to earth!!

First thing that comes to your mind is ....Is it possible???

Second thing strikes you is .....Is that feasible???

The main task lies in this, that How we are going to transmit it to the earth??
For me Here two ways are feasible .
·         Using microwave
·         Using laser

But How does it will work by the way?

A Pictorial Representation Of The Idea That I Have ( image courstey Mafic studio)

Huge solar collectors will be used to collect the radiated energy from the sun.

  • The energy converted by the photo voltaic cells are then converted into microwaves & transmitted to the earth
  • The receivers can be orbiting or stationary on the earth.
  • They collect the Microwave energy and then convert them into the form suitable for our use.
  • The main drawback is that the microwave spreads for a large distance before reaching the earth.
  • The intensity is reduced so we need to use large collectors at receiver's side.

  • The above drawback can be overcomed in this method.
  • The deviation in the LASER beam is very less & is within centimetres.
  • The disadvantage of this method is that the laser beam is deflected by the clouds. So if the place is covered by clouds then it can not be transmitted at that place.

  • They do not produce green house gases & also since they are away from earth they do not pollute the environment.
  • If the initial cost are met it is the best alternative.
  • They're not constrained by night/day cycles, the weather, or the changing seasons. And indeed, they would be much more efficient than any kind of ground-based station.
  • The collection of solar energy in space is seven times greater per unit area than on the surface of the planet. Moreover, the amount of solar energy available up there is staggering — on the order of billions of times greater than what we draw today; the Earth receives only one part in 2.3 billion of the Sun's output. The potential for scalability is enormous, to say the least.
