    Floatovoltaics Can Serve

    News Release: NREL Details Great Potential for Floating PV Systems; Technology Already in Widespread Use Overseas, Especially in Japan

    December 27, 2019 (National Renewable Energy Laboratory)

    “…[I]nstalling floating solar photovoltaics on the more than 24,000 man-made U.S. reservoirs could generate about 10 percent of the nation’s annual electricity production [according to new National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) research. Ten years ago, the U.S. was the first to demonstrate floating PV panels, but] the idea has not received widespread national acceptance. The U.S. focus has primarily been on installing large-scale, ground-mounted solar panels, and only had seven floating PV sites as of December 2017…[But there were more than 100 sites globally at the end of 2018 and Japan had] 56 of the 70 largest floating PV installations…

    ...[NREL estimates] about 2.1 million hectares of land could be saved if solar panels were installed on bodies of water instead of on the ground. The use of floating PV comes with additional benefits, including reduced water evaporation and algae growth…[O]perating floating PV alongside hydroelectric facilities yields increased energy output and cost savings because of existing transmission infrastructure…[With the cost of acquiring and developing land becoming a larger part of the cost of a solar project, there is growing momentum behind] adoption of floating solar…” click here for more
