Floating solar farms could help to protect lakes and reservoirs from some of the harms of climate change, a new study suggests. However, given the complex nature of water bodies and differing designs of solar technologies, there could also be detrimental ecosystem impacts of deploying floating solar arrays. Conventional solar farms are controversial due to the amount of land theyRead more

BayWa r.e., together with its Dutch partner GroenLeven, recently completed two floating solar parks in Nij Beets and Kloosterhaar, Netherlands. The sites combined contain more than 70,000 solar panels and a total capacity of 29.2 MWp, enough to supply 9,000 Dutch households with clean energy. Floating solar parks offer the opportunity to give unusable areas of water a new benefitRead more
In a significant development marking the end of 2020, two large-scale floating solar projects in Vietnam were commissioned in December. They were the 35 MWp Ho Tam Bo floating solar power plant and the 35 MWp Ho Gia Hoet 1 floating PV plant. The two projects have been set up on Gia Hoet 1 and Tam Bo irrigation lakes, inRead more
