Growing resistance to the construction of fields of solar panels and wind turbines on land has led the renewable energy industry to look for alternative options. In order to overcome to this challenge, Dutch engineers are building what will be the world’s largest archipelago of islands made up of sun-tracking solar panels.
According to The Guardian, In a development that is to become the largest of its type in the world, construction will begin this year on 15 solar islands on the Andijk reservoir in North Holland. The islands, containing 73,500 panels, will have the sunflower-like ability to move to face the light.
The first phase of the project, involving three islands, each of which will be 140 meters in diameter, is due to be finished by November, once the migratory season for birds has come to an end.
