Superconductors have an essential problem: They operate at ultra-low temperatures. There are no room-temperature superconductors. Billions of dollars have funded research to solve this problem. Scientists around the world are trying to understand the physics of superconductors and how they can be enhanced. If that happens, then solar energy could be transmitted over long distances without any loss of energy.
