Millions of British homes could be powered by a giant solar power station 24,000 miles up in space within three decades, under proposals being considered by the government. Under the plan, a system of five huge satellites – each more than a mile wide, covered in solar panels and weighing several thousand tonnes – would deliver laser beams of energy down to Earth. These would provide up to 15 per cent of the country’s electricity supply by 2050, enough to power 4 million households – with the first space energy expected to be delivered by 2040.
