Japanese firms to showcase solar power systems at WFES.

The Japanese pavilion at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, UAE, is set to showcase space solar power systems (SSPS), under the theme 'Solar Power Energy.'

The WFES 2015 will run from January 19 to 22 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.

As many as 17 companies and organisations will take part as partners of the Japan pavilion for WFES 2015 and two firms for International Water Summit (IWS), which will be co-located with the summit.

The SSPS, which has been studied and developed by Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa) under a support from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, is a space-based solar power plant that generates energy by collecting sunlight in geostationary orbit.

The energy is then transmitted to the ground in the form of microwaves or laser beams, and converted into electricity and hydrogen for practical use.

Additionally, the pavilion will also showcase a H-IIA launch vehicle model (1/33 scale), one of the Japan's flagship launch vehicles.

It will also introduce a propositional exhibit, a future environmental island, 'Green Float' which will utilise the energy transmitted by SSPS.

'Green Float' is a city in the sky that floats on the water rising 700 to 1,000 m above the equator where temperatures are stable at 26 to 28-degree C year-round and the impact of typhoon is minimal.

Its innovations include an energy distribution system that uses direct current; a seawater desalination plant that makes fountain of fresh water above the ocean; and captures surrounding CO2 with CCS (Carbon dioxide capture and storage) system. - TradeArabia News Service
