Wireless Electricity

Despite the fact that Luratia is a cloudy planet, almost all of the electricity we use comes directly from the sun. We collect energy in space with massive solar panels that orbit the planet and transmit it to the ground, where it is wirelessly distributed around the world.

 

HISTORY

2022: Discovery of clarkon, known on Earth as graphene

2062: First successful solar power experiment conducted at the North Pole, the “sunniest” place on Luratia, using clarkon solar cells

2080: First satellite orbits Luratia

2083: Satellite solar cell platform launched into space

2085: Space-to-ground transmission of electricity successfully conducted via microwaves

2090: High-capacity ground receivers were first developed; known as rectennae, they were capable of receiving large quantities of electricity from space, then storing and transmitting that electricity to energy relay dishes

2094: High-volume space-to-ground transmission of electricity achieved

2096: Encryption of electricity first developed in order to control the dissemination of electricity; energy relay dishes create local fields of wireless electricity with restrictions and limits

2100s: Nanotechnology innovations during the first decades of this century significantly reduces the power requirements of devices both large and small; increasingly, small devices became self-powering with graphene nanocoatings that capture small bits of ambient electricity from the air or that instantaneously convert any wavelength of light into electricity
