Floating solar is now considered to be the « third pillar of the solar industry », alongside rooftop and ground-mounted applications. The number of projects increases as well as the size of the FPV plants. That is why the question of minimizing the production, transportation, processes impacts is becoming key as regards of the market growth. Indeed, every activy, even among Renewable Energy, has a carbon footprint.
This white paper will capture the following:
- Floating Solar: main benefits and potential
- CO2 impact considerations in Renewable Energy project development
- Case Study: calculations of the carbon footprint in a Central European plant
“Ciel & Terre has been working hard to improve the carbon footprint of its solutions by considering the Life Cycle of a product (LCA) – from the acquisition of raw materials resources to the final removal of the product (ISO 14040 2006). In partnership with a French Engineering School, Ciel & Terre has conducted the first study to evaluate the carbon footprint of its Hydrelio® aiR system. They identified the main sources of CO2 consumption, from prod to delivery, and the other parameters to be improved in order to develop renewable solutions with the lowest CO2 emissions.”
