Lessons can be learnt from China’s support for floating solar, Sungrow says

A Chinese government policy that resulted in hundreds of megawatts of floating PV projects deployed on flooded coal mines could be replicated elsewhere, according to Sungrow. Through the Top Runner programme, the country’s National Energy Agency issued a tender in 2016 for the installation of 1GWp of floating PV (FPV) in coal mine subsidence areas, […]

Study finds potential for colocating floating solar with hydropower in Africa

Hydropower plants across Africa could double their capacity if just 1% of their reservoirs are used to install floating solar projects, new research suggests. The large-scale roll-out of floating solar at hydropower reservoirs in the continent could reduce water evaporation, help to satisfy future energy needs and increase resilience to climate change without redesigning existing […]
