'Solar at sea is a unique source of renewable energy'

With financial support from the Dutch Enterprise Agency (RVO), six companies and research institutes have started a project they hope will result in the world’s first offshore floating solar farm, taking a leap out to sea from the PV arrays already appearing on lakes and reservoirs around the globe. Leading the project, Oceans of Energy , founded by Allard van Hoeken , is advancing work that if successful could use the space available between offshore wind turbines to boost output. Tell us more about the project’s basic aims Large-scale offshore floating solar energy systems do not yet exist. Solar at sea is a unique source of renewable energy, as it does not use scarce land space. It is ideal for islands and other remote regions. How far out do you plan to deploy the floating solar, and what would be the size, in terms of megawatts and scale? The pilot farm will be deploy...
