Have you ever heard of space-based solar power? Simply put, sunlight power is preserved at orbiting satellites instead of equipment on earth's surface. It is said that energy saved is bigger because sunlight does not have to go through atmosphere which diffuses the light. The question is how we can transfer the energy from orbiting satellites to earth. Researches are working on transmitting the energy by converting it to microwaves. Once it arrives at earth's surface, it is converted back to electricity. Many raise concerns related to radiation if we use this method. We will need to provide big space and protection to make sure the process is safe.
