The advantage of floating solar parks is that scarce land does not have to be used to generate sustainable energy. At first, mainly sand extraction ponds, dredging depots, reservoirs, and basins of water companies are used. Moreover, floating solar parks generate more power than onshore PV installations, research shows. Especially when rotating panels are constantly aligned with the sun.
According to Electrek, the Netherlands has announced plans to build 2 GW capacity of floating solar by 2023, both on inland waters and at sea, as per Solarplaza.
The National Consortium Sun on Water set the target. “The Netherlands needs to rely on floating solar, as it has done with offshore wind, due to a lack of available land space” Dr. Wiep Folkerts, chairman of The National Consortium Sun on Water, said.
