High Demand for Renewable-based Electricity Generation to Drive Installation of Floating Solar Panels

  • 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. Increase in awareness about floating solar and solar power generation is projected to propel the demand for floating solar panels during the forecast period.
  • Floating solar plants offer various benefits such as increase in energy generation due to the cooling effect of panels, conservation of water through reduction of evaporation, and lower installation time than conventional land-mounted panels
  • Demand for floating solar plants has increased owing to the potential synergies; some developers claim that such systems are 50% more efficient than land-based solar plants
