    Harvesting Renewable Energy and Wirelessly Transmitting it around the globe for the benefit of mankind!


    It is well known fact that in only six hours, the world's deserts receive more energy from the sun than our planet consumes in a year.


    The red squares (image#2, source: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desertec) represent the equivalent area that would be enough for solar power plants to produce electricity needed by our world today (Data provided by the German Aerospace Centre (DLR), 2005).


    Not surprisingly, there continues to be uncertainty on how to best transmit vast amounts of energy around the globe - even if we figure out how to generate this energy. Use of traditional overhead and underground transmission lines results in excessive line losses, and the cost of upkeep and maintenance of these transmission lines is quite pricey. Added to the challenge, power generation from natural gas, coal, or oil represents continued environmental threat and remains quite expensive.


    We, our planet, is in dire need of “smart technology” that would allow energy generation and transmission anywhere in the world. Fortunately, such problem may have been solved at least a hundred years ago by the genius Nikola Tesla. Nikola Tesla was convinced that the WardenClyffe Tower was the solution to wireless transmission of power.


    To validate and prove on Nikola Tesla’s research, Global Energy Transmission introduced the construction project of the Planetary Energy Transmitter – currently looking for funding on Indiegogo – a popular crowdfunding platform.
    The suggested solution would allow for a more efficient and safe method of transmitting energy between the various continents.


    It seems that GlobalEnergyTransmission’s team has solved the puzzle behind Tesla's works and is now ready to commence with the construction of the Planetary Energy Transmitter – the modern analogue of the WardenClyffe Tower.


    The working principle of the Transmitter is described on the company’s website (www.globalenergytransmission.com) and details all the information related to this project.


    The team is optimistic to validate Nikola Tesla’s ideas and theory on Wireless Energy Transmission. “Our goal is the prove and offer the solution to the world”.
