    Waves Of New Growth For Floating Solar

    Floating Solar Opens New Markets For Renewable Energy

    Mark Venables, May 28, 2019 (Forbes)

    “…[New technology] will enable large-scale solar developments on coastal seawater, lakes, and reservoirs…[The flagship ‘floater’] has a diameter of 72m with an area of approximately 4000m2…[Floaters use] utility type, dual-glass, crystalline silicon modules with a customized junction box, cables, and attachment features…The modules can be rapidly and securely attached to the membrane enabling good thermal contact with the waterbody. The membrane itself is non-permeable and is a barrier against the waterbody, designed to withstand mechanical stress and sun exposure…[The] product is best suited within 45 degrees latitude…[Target] areas are some of the hottest regions on the planet such as Australia, the Sahara Desert, and the Middle East…

    According to data from the World Bank, these contain nearly 400,000 square kilometers of man-made reservoirs alone…[A tiny portion of these vast areas of water surfaces would be a two-terawatt] $2 trillion business, assuming approximately one dollar per watt installed…[A prototype floater] has been on trial for two years… Statkraft ordered a floating solar plant with a maximum capacity of 2 MW for the Banja reservoir in Albania. The solar park will consist of four floating units of 0.5 MW each, with a total investment cost of €2.3 million…[It] is the first major commercial contract for the system…” click here for more
