EMROD in action
EMROD’s power-beaming system is an enabling technology with a large number of use cases.
EMROD’s partners are energy and space industry leaders, government agencies, and visionary organizations transforming how we generate and use power.
01Edge of network distribution
Utility companies have a long-standing need to improve energy distribution to service remote areas where power line technology is too expensive to lay and maintain. This existing challenge is being amplified with the need to scale up grid infrastructure and distribute grid points more widely to meet industry electrification and renewable energy needs.
EMROD's power-beaming system is a solution to enable grid scalability, flexibility, and resilience by reducing much of the physical infrastructure required to establish and maintain an energy grid system.
02Unleashing space-based energy infrastructure
EMROD’s core power-beaming technology is a central component of space-based energy infrastructure, including space-based solar power.
The Worldwide Energy Matrix (WEM) is a space-based satellite system for sending power to, from, and around the Earth.

03Connecting renewables to the grid
Energy sourced from wind and solar is expected to triple in order to meet global Net Zero targets. Wind and solar projects are usually best located in remote locations, which are more challenging and expensive to connect to the grid.
EMROD’s power-beaming system provides a solution to send power across challenging terrain without having to lay and maintain powerlines or underwater cables.
04Powering cellular-based stations
Cell towers require power, which is normally sourced from utility supplies, or by generators which require regular fuel replacement. Making the connection from the utility point of supply to the cellular base station can be expensive, and in some cases not possible. Replacing generator fuel regularly is a time consuming and costly exercise.
EMROD’s system provides a wireless point-to-point connection between the utility point of supply and the base station.
05Humanitarian assistance & disaster relief
EMROD’s power-beaming system can be quickly deployed to supply power to disaster-stricken areas, bringing them back online faster and without requiring diesel generators.
