Wang Xiji of the China Academy of Sciences, speaking at the China Energy Environment Summit on August 28, described a study on space solar power completed last month by the Academy. The study outlined technology development and authentication by 2020 and implementing a commercial space solar power station by 2040.

“Whoever takes the lead in the development and utilization of clean and renewable energy and the space and aviation industry will be the world leader,” Wang said. “The development of a solar power station in space will fundamentally change the way in which people exploit and obtain power.”
