The Lunar Grid is developing technology for wireless energy transmission, both for terrestrial and space applications. The transmission will be established over a free-space optical laser link and can reach over several kilometers providing power to remote systems. A specially designed power receptor unit will be utilised to convert the inclining laser light back into electricity and provide electrical energy.
This power beaming technology will be utilised for several terrestrial use cases to provide energy in remote locations and the technology will be upgraded to serve space systems. In particular it will enable advanced operation capabilities for lunar systems, such as rovers/habitats/communication beacons/… and can be scaled towards any extra-terrestrial missions, for example to Mars.
