RWE and SolarDuck accelerate technology development and commercialisation of offshore floating solar at scale
The integration of offshore floating solar into an offshore wind farm is a more efficient use of ocean space for energy generation and allows for synergies with regards to the construction and maintenance of the multi-source renewable energy plant.
Turlock Irrigation District Selected to Pilot First-In-The-Nation Water-Energy Nexus Project Involving Solar Panels Over Canals
Ground to break this fall, providing proof of concept for University of California academic study; energy storage to be incorporated
First Batch of World's Largest Tidal-Flat 300MW Utility Scale Solar PV Plant Successfully Connected to the Grid
The first batch of units of world's largest tidal-flat utility PV plant (300 MW) have been successfully connected to the grid for power generation. This completed the annual grid connection goal safely, efficiently and satisfactorily.
The 41 MW floating solar plant will be installed at the Hapcheon Dam in the south of the country in what will become the largest such PV construction located at a dam anywhere in the world.
The researchers estimate that adding floating solar panels to bodies of water that are already home to hydropower stations could produce as much as 7.6 terawatts of potential power a year from the solar PV systems alone.
Floating solar plants are emerging as alternatives to conventional ground mounted photovoltaic systems. Majority of the countries are shifting to offshore-based solar power generation owing to shortage of land area.
While the United States was the first to demonstrate floating PV panels-with the first installation occurring 10 years ago on pontoons on an irrigation pond in Napa Valley, California-the idea has not received widespread national acceptance.
Echo Huang for Quartz: The Berkeley Energy Group is planning to turn a strip mine in the Appalachians into a solar power plant that could produce somewhere between 50 to 100 MW of power in 2018.
Ships 40 MW of Modules to Huainan City China Project
Floating Solar Expert Increases Worldwide Solar PV Production To 70+ MWp and Exhibits at Intersolar North America
Ciel & Terre® has made waves in the solar power world for over 10 years with experience installing their large-scale floating PV systems all around the world.
Sungrow, the global leading PV inverter system solution supplier, announced that the world's largest floating PV power plant of 40MW with Sungrow's PV inverters utilized has been successfully connected to the grid in Huainan, China.
Upsolar Expands its Floating Solar Panel Solutions into Europe after its Successful Installation of the Worlds Largest PV Test-bed in Tengeh Lake, Singapore
The installed 840 floating PV panels have a total peak capacity of 220 kilowatts and is expected to generate 332 megawatts per hour in its first year - equivalent to the annual consumption of around 100 homes.
Led by the EDB and PUB, a 1 MWp floating solar PV testbed has been launched at Tengeh Reservoir, with project management by the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS).
Mark Lammey for EnergyVoice: A major bank’s decision to throw its weight behind a floating solar power scheme shows the sector is rich with commercial potential, bosses at engineering consultancy OST Energy said. OST acted as technical adviser for Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) during the early stages of the project to bring Europe’s largest floating photovoltaic solar project to financial close earlier this year. The 6.3 Megawatt peak (MWp) array, installed by Lightsource Renewable Energy, is the first project of its kind to secure European bank financing. It now provides a source of clean energy to water utilities company, Thames Water, on the Queen Elizabeth II reservoir west of London. Thames Water will buy all energy generated by the project as part of a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Lightsource. Cont'd...
