This paper discusses the problem of creating a global terrestrial power transmission system. The paper analyses alternative systems including such nontraditional systems as wireless power transmission systems. From the above discussion it appears that using microwave beam power transmission with an orbital reflector may be more effective in the case of power transportation between two very distant regions on the Earth, right up to the power transportation between two continents
