An Economic Assessment of Space Solar Power as a Source of Electricity for Space-Based Activities
Molly K. Macauley, James F. Davis
RFF Discussion Paper 01-46 | October 2001
RESEARCH TOPICS:
Abstract
We develop a conceptual model of the economic value of space solar power (SSP) as a source of power to in-space activities, such as spacecraft and space stations. We offer several estimates of the value based on interviews and published data, discuss technological innovations that may compete with or be complementary to SSP, and consider alternative institutional arrangements for government and the private sector to provide SSP.
