Advantages of using Floating PV Solar Power Stations
P. K. Saxena
Abstract: The limited fossil fuel resources and higher energy demand concentrates on solar energy, which is free of cost and unlimited source of energy, eco-friendly and sustainable to the environment. But during the execution of the solar projects on land, problems are faced by the government and partners of the scheme such as land availability, land development & land acquisition, substation capacities, evacuation also timely clearances for the project on land and evacuation these are hurdles for completion of the project. Most of the locations projected by the government considering solar radiation data in the country are hot and dry regions. Though at these locations the radiation appeared to be higher, the energy yield of these points is less due to heating of the solar panels and higher temperature of the surface of solar cells. To overcome these problems an innovative idea has come in front for installation of solar power plants on the water that is canal tops, water bodies, lakes, dam backwater and reservoirs, which generally belongs to the government. This paper reveals review regarding the advantage of using floating solar PV power plants.
