The Space Energy Initiative (SEI) will bring together government, research and industry in the energy and space sectors to develop and deliver a co-ordinated programme of technology development and demonstration.

Meeting the timeline set out by the Government’s Net Zero pledge, and in partnership with other nations, the aim is to establish the first orbital demonstrator SBSP system by 2030, with the first of a kind operational system delivering power into the grid by 2040. The first generation of Solar Power Satellites would be in operation by the mid 2040s, replacing a substantial proportion of the UK’s legacy fossil fuel energy generation capacity.
