Albeit High Upfront Cost, Floating Solar Panels Set to Solve the Perennial Problem of Land

Published: Tue Aug 27 2019

Conceived to surmount land availability issues, floating solar panels have started to grab attention globally for solar companies and land speculators have gobbled up scarce land. Floating solar photovoltaic (PV) installations aim to solve the perennial problem of land. In addition, floating solar projects set up in the proximity of consumption centers or reservoirs of hydro-electric dams help utilize existing transmission infrastructure.

The chances of adding floating solar capacity to existing hydropower has gained traction, preferably in the case of large hydropower sites that can be flexibly operated. The solar capacity has been used to propel the energy yield and manage periods of low water availability by leveraging the hydropower plant to function in peaking mode.

Of late, plants with capacity of tens and hundreds of megawatts have been installed in China with more conceptualization going on in India and Southeast Asia. While the first plant larger than 10 MWp was installed in 2016, the world witnessed the first several plants larger than 100 MWp in 2018—the largest being 150 MWp. With the introduction of new markets, annual new additions and cumulative installed floating solar capacity are growing robustly.

High upfront cost loom with floating solar panels which is mainly attributed to the existence of components such as pontoons, floats; submerged water cables and mooring systems. Besides, floats are a considerable cost component majorly due to soaring logistics cost linked with import and transportation.
