Basically, water bodies are covered with PV modules thanks to a floating structure. Floating solar is the smart combination of floats and solar panels, the whole system being anchored at the bottom, to the banks or both.
Indeed, it aims to produce renewable energy where land is scarce, not to mention the complement energy generation by other energy facilities.
Floating solar plants can be used by companies, industries, public institutions or local authorities throughout the world. They meet on-site clean energy needs or inject electricity into the grid.
Floating solar is an answer to societal concerns and also creates opportunities
for renewable energy production.
