Britain has come up with a unique trick to achieve the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero by 2050. He is working on a plan to build a solar power station in space. 50 British technical organizations including Airbus, Cambridge University have joined hands with this initiative of the government.

The UK started an initiative to explore options in this direction last year. Its objective is to achieve the target of zero greenhouse gas emissions at the lowest cost compared to existing technology. According to the initiative’s chairman, Martin Soltau, all the technology needed to develop a solar power station in space is already in place.

Robots are responsible for the work of the plant
Robots will do all the work of building this plant. Britain aims to have electricity on Earth by the beginning of 2035. This power plant can be several miles long. To get it to space orbit, 300 rockets the size of SpaceX’s Starship would be needed.

Once formed, it will revolve around the Sun along with the Earth for 36,000 km. This plant will collect solar energy like a solar power plant working on the earth.

Plant will work in all weather
It will generate 13 times more electricity than a solar power plant of the same size on Earth. The great thing is that such a power plant will not face any kind of time or meteorological problem, because the sun will always shine on it in space. Renewable energy plants on Earth often face this problem because the sun doesn’t always shine and the wind doesn’t blow all the time.

Not only this, such power plants have to rely on battery storage to avoid the loss of energy. The UK currently gets more than 40% of its electricity needs from renewable energy, but the demand for renewable energy is expected to triple over the next three decades.

Antenna convert microwave radiation into electrical energy
To bring solar energy from space to the earth, a huge antenna will have to be installed on the earth, which is called rectena. This rectenna will be like a huge open lattice, with many small antennae attached to it. These antennas will absorb microwave radiation sent from space and convert it into electrical energy. Scientists claim that there will be no danger to people from this radiation.
