Delivering clean energy from space
August 12, 2021 3:00pm Online
The utility of solar power to deliver useful energy services is limited by the daily day-night cycle.
However, ultra-lightweight mirrors in Earth orbit could in principle reflect sunlight onto large solar power farms at dawn and dusk, when solar output is low but energy demand can be high. This event will discuss both the technical challenges associated with the development of orbiting solar reflectors and the regulatory issues associated with their future deployment.Join Waiting List
Tea & Talk Series
The Tea & Talk series invites everyone to enjoy a cup of tea while engaging with experts in a friendly, relaxed discussion. There won’t be any PowerPoints, notes, or formality here – just the chance to ask questions and to listen to some of Scotland’s leading authorities on a variety of subjects.
All Tea & Talk events will take place using Zoom Meetings so attendees can take part using audio and video. To encourage discussion and allow for everyone an opportunity to ask questions we have limited the number of spaces available.
THIS EVENT IS ONLY OPEN TO ATTENDEES AGED 16+
