Where we are coming from ... and where we are going

Chartered in 1997, the Space Solar Power Institute is a non-profit 501(c)3 educational corporation, organized in the public interest to educate the public about Space Solar Power and the clean baseload energy transformation which defines why, when and how SSP must be built.   Contributions are tax-deductible. It works with many friends, partners, donors and volunteers in a continuing effort to understand  how to design, initiate, finance, market, build, deliver, support, operate, and maintain a Space Solar Power System for the world baseload energy market. Its working committees direct these activities through professional workshops and various conferences.  Let's build it!!

The Space Solar Power Workshop at Georgia Tech has been a primary technical focus; webspace provided courtesy of the Georgia Institute of Technology, Aerospace Engineering Department.  Its editorial content is solely the responsibility of the group and module authors, the webmaster and The Space Solar Power Institute.
