Can photons be used to transmit power ?

  1. Mar 20, 2016 #1
    we see fibre optic cables carry huge amount of data across the world . some companies have discovered how to use photons instead of electrons in electronics and computing , they call it photonics. i wonder if we can use the photons instead of electrons in power transmission lines .

    Is there some natural processes in which energy is transferred through photons?
