with Molly Cox (Wood Mackenzie)
Solar panels floating on the water today are an increasingly common sight in many different countries. What started as an extremely innovative and experimental idea is now very popular and here to stay.
Floating solar has shown to not only be an efficient way of producing sustainable energy, but it also presents many advantages over land-based systems, such as improved water quality, reduced evaporation, and higher energy yield. With a promising future, floating solar could double the current global installed capacity of solar PV.
In this Up Close interview, Molly Cox, Solar Analyst at Wood Mackenzie Power & Renewables, gives a snapshot of the most recent floating solar market developments, trends, and a forecast for the coming years.
