This article is a fairly comprehensive history and current description of the national initiatives around the world to develop wireless power transmission and affordable launch capabilities for Space Based Solar Power.  Unfortunately, the US is presently sitting on the sidelines.  The US should be leading for this new robust, baseload and climate friendly energy source.

If tgey can send powerwirelessly we should be able to remove land based transmission line and pole with the same wireless power . This was one of Nikola Tesla's many ideas.
