Another example; Recently at Airbus X-Works Innovation Factory in Munich, a key technology for space-based solar power was used to produce hydrogen. The technology was also used to light up a model city, and to cool a non-alcoholic beer in a connected fridge, before it was served to the watching audience. The work was highlighted today (9 November) by the European Space Agency (ESA), which plans to investigate key SBSP technologies through its Solaris Initiative. IMechE, Nov 2022

This work was linked to ESAs Solaris, where the space agency "envision a Europe and world where clean, abundant, secure, safe and affordable energy is available to everyone."
