Renewable energy engineering projects tend to be a hotbed for innovation with some of the most talented minds in the world focused on finding new ways to generate cleaner power. Solar has long been a great source of renewable energy but there have also been challenges, such as securing enough land for the solar PV design and systems that are required to generate the energy that we need. Now, a new era in renewable energy engineering projects is dawning as engineers start to look at how to do this on water. A new partnership, called PV2 Float, has been put together to look at floating solar PV, analyzing whether this might be a cost-effective way forward, as well as identifying technical requirements and the ecological impact of this approach. The PV2 Float project will run over three years and is designed to show how it's possible for organizations to expand their solar capacity without taking up any extra land space to do it.
