Plasma as conductor

    My question is can plasma be used to conduct electricity as efficiently as a solid conductor? I know stability is an issue , but can it be overcome.

    Common as discharge tubes are based on conduction by plasma.
    Light or other radiation is generated so the transport is not efficient.
