Would this save energy?

Consider spherical highly reflective objects are built & placed in orbit around Moon or Planet to absorb Solar energy?

Then connect them between the planets surface on land and sea with other reflective disc like panels, that are interacting with even yet another array of reflective mobilized technology maybe blimp drones or some other aviation based reflective disc array reflecting in a constant cycle of Solar energy. From space reflective spheres raying onto atmospheric based reflective technologies and them raying energy down to planet surface non stop. As the reflective spherical space based technologies would be orbiting the planet or moon constantly beaming the atmospheric based technologies with condensed solar energy feeding the designated planets surface technology...

If it would not save, please explain why... Thanks in advance

It would be more cost effective to use a standard earth bound solar array and back it up at night with a bank of lithium iron or lithium sulfur battery's. the cost to launch an orbital array or reflectors would be prohibited by comparison. An earth bound array can be installed for $6.00 or less per watt plus battery's.

These solar applications would beam energy to building structures and homes to transportation that has been retrofitted and built with solar panel technologies... Meaning no need for mineral resource consumption usage at all...
That should foot the builders fee many times fold.

It sounds great. My only concern, because I am no scientist, is that it could be very vulnerable to sabotage. If the energy is saved as beamed down so that if there is terrorists or downtime or whatever-we would have enough backup during the repair then I see no negatives. And, of, course the consent and agreements among governments would be difficult at best. I love the idea though.

in an ill-thought out sci-fi fantasy maybe , why wast billions shooting technology into orbit thats likely as effective on earth, is the sun more energetic around the moon?
its hard to take people who say namaste seriously.

In what form would you "beam energy"?

Concentrations of solar arrays aimed at central solar collectors / reflectors that then beam to the atmospheric arrays feeding the surface.
Good question

To keep the beams continuous and strong when the sun light is on the other side of the planet continuously feeding areas requiring energy...

Basically assign one space based spherical reflector per continent two or more depending on continent size.
Build solar energy collection/reflection fields near the more populated regions on land and in sea (floating) that can feed energy to its population or build the collection/reflection fields in remote regions for future building sites.
Place mobilized aviation collection/reflection technologies also over regions the collection/reflection fields exist. Then GPS coordinate the systems per continent from space to aviation to land and each continent is activated.
Place larger collection/reflection towers between each continent systems linking the planet or moon for any to collect from...

Yes it does. Some people think a Dyson sphere must be a "sphere" but it was never intended by Dyson to be a solid sphere and he was well aware of problems with such a configuration, but orbiting satellites would work. The idea doesn't sound like a full Dyson sphere or "shell" as Dyson called it, but some steps to the beginning of one.

Dyson sphere

He proposed a system of orbiting structures (which he referred to initially as a shell) designed to intercept and collect all energy produced by the Sun.

It's a perfectly valid thing to say in India or on an Indian forum, from one Hindu to another, but most of us on ATS are not Hindu.

It doesn't violate any terms and conditions so it's fine from that respect.

Yes when you see a Hindu greeting being given to an audience that's mostly not Hindu, then you might expect to see some other out-of-place things from the poster, and they usually seem to fulfill that expectation.

What if space debri hits an array? There wouldn't be any source of energy to fix it.

How about autonomous bots also solar powered that problem solve with human intelligence assisting them remotely?

If this technology was designed it could be used to power other planets like Mars and moons.

In order to be any where effective, not considering the hardware and cost...
The transmissions would have to be coherent, otherwise the inverse square law would probably leave you with the equivalent of flashlights. Lots of "yet to be invented" tech in this scenario.

No mineral use at all? Then what are they made of?

Perhaps you meant no fossil fuel use at all. Then my question is how did they get there?

We are at the point now, where every glass element of a buildings design, can be converted to have photovoltaic properties, if we deploy our most advanced technological aptitude to the issue. Windows, skylights, these things can be converted to produce electricity for the building, and that could happen today. We have the ability to build buildings which funnel air flow through turbines to produce power from the wind. We could install flooring in high traffic areas, which turns every footstep, every passage of a car tyre, into useful energy, to power street lamps, traffic signals, and the like.

The technology to make our cities and our homes produce the energy we need by default, already exists, and all without launching trillions of dollars of equipment into orbit, which comes with great risks to the equipment itself, in terms of potential loss or overload owing to solar flares, asteroid damage, or the break up of old satellites causing scattershot debris to shred them.

The solutions to our energy problems already exist, and all that remains to be done, is for these things to be deployed.
