[zldhbsvq] Challenges of transmitting power

Assume that the future of power generation will be large amounts of power generated at remote locations.  Nuclear power plants far from populations, solar plants in the desert, wind turbines in flat areas, hydroelectric power from large dams.

Then, the key corresponding technology we need to develop is efficiently transporting the energy over long distances.  Superconducting cables?  Electrolysis then hydrogen through pipelines or tankers?
