Enhancing Global Clean Energy Services Using Orbiting Solar Reflectors

Project description

Ultra-lightweight orbiting solar reflectors for enhanced global clean energy services

Providing clean energy services is a major engineering challenge for the current century. The EU-funded SOLSPACE project therefore aims to develop and demonstrate a novel strategy to improve the delivery of global clean energy services. It will achieve this through the use of ultra-lightweight orbiting solar reflectors. A constellation of reflectors will illuminate large terrestrial solar power plants, focusing on the times of day when output is low but electricity demand and spot prices are high. By demonstrating the opportunities provided by orbiting solar reflectors, the project will play a role in accelerating the use of global clean energy services in the 21st century.
