The Unstoppable Tide of Solar Illustrated by the Rise of Floating Projects

PV Magazine:

A report by the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) examines almost 100 of the world’s largest operational and planned solar projects, with 14 of the biggest under construction in India, China, Egypt, the United Arab Emirates, Pakistan, Mexico, Japan, Argentina, Portugal and Australia.

The report also focuses on corporate renewable Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) such as those which have seen tech giants Amazon, Microsoft and Apple procure renewable power for their energy-intensive data centres, either from existing facilities or their own rooftop installations. The take-up of corporate PPAs is at a record level, according to IEEFA, with solar accounting for a rising proportion of them.

Highlighting the rise of floating solar, the report examines China’s largest operational project – a 40 MW scheme in Anhui district – as well as more ambitious plans, and the potential for similar projects to be deployed in reservoirs, waste water treatment facilities, fish farms and collapsed coal mines in countries including Japan, Indonesia, South Korea, Vietnam and England.
