The report yielded some exciting results for the space industry.
Frazer-Nash Consultancy has recently undertaken a study, published by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) today (27 September), which considered the technical feasibility, cost and economics of Space Based Solar Power (SBSP) as a novel generation technology which could help the UK achieve Net Zero emissions by 2050.
This report concluded that space solar power is technically feasible, affordable, and could both bring substantial economic benefits for the UK, and could support Net Zero pathways.
