Top 70 Floating Solar PV Plants in the World

Floating Offshore Solar PV Plants

Solar power is the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity, either directly using photovoltaics (PV), or indirectly using concentrated solar power.  Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam.  Photovoltaic cells convert light into an electric current using the photovoltaic effect.

Floating solar photovoltaic (PV) is an economical commercial technology that has exploded in popularity in the past years. The information below was compiled from a data posted by Solarplaza, event organizer of Solar Asset Management North America
