Space Cafè Summit: “The Quest for Energy from Space”

The hard reality of energy dependency has since February hit the European continent, which has decided to give a decisive push to the search for alternative methods to generate green and independent energy.

Space is part of this huge technological challenge, with Space Based Solar Panels (SBSP) being discussed more and more as a viable method to generate electricity directly from Space-based infrastructures. Needless to say, the technological, economical, political and environmental challenges are enormous.

  • Considering the profound interconnections between energy, politics and conflicts, what is really at stake?
  • What are SBSP about?
  • Are they really a solid alternative to generate green electricity?
  • How much will they cost?
  • And how far away are we from making it happen?

We will discuss all these questions with a panel of experts involved with the search for green energy from the skys.

Emma Gatti, SpaceWatch.Global’s Editor-in-Chief, discusses these topics with

  • John Mankins – Chair, International Academy of Astronautics Permanent Committee on Space Solar Power
  • Sabine Pongruber – Founder & CEO WEME Global
  • Ed Tate – CTO and Founder of Virtus Solis Tehcnologies, Inc.
  • Sanjay Vijendran – Mars Exploration Strategy Team Leader and Future Mars Studies Coordinator at ESA

The audience will have an opportunity to ask questions.

This Space Cafè Summit “The Quest for Energy from Space” will be conducted in English on 3rd November 2022 at 5pm CET

SpaceWatch.Global is a Europe-based digital magazine and portal for those interested in space and the far-reaching impact of the space sector.

UK’s new space regulation will fuel participation in the commercial space race

UK regulations regarding space, in force since July 2021, helped pave the way for Virgin Orbit to get approval for launching its LauncherOne vehicle from Newquay’s Spaceport Cornwall facility. The launch will be the first ever space launch from UK soil. Commercial space lawyer Andrew Sparrow, Founder of Lecote Applied Space Technology Lawyers, says this model shows how to align enabling laws with industry needs.
