Region :Global | Report ID: FBI101379 | Status : Ongoing



Electrical energy is the basic need today, and its demand is increasing all over the world. Also, the need for an alternate source for energy has gained importance, and as solar energy is promoted by government's ambitious green energy targets, it has become a major attraction for investors. Over the last decade countries like China, India, Japan Germany and USA have come up as solar powerhouses and increased the production of electricity by solar energy which in turn has helped the floating solar panel market to grow.

Floating solar panel is mounted on structures that float on water body. Waterbody typically includes drinking water reservoirs, quarry lakes, irrigation canals, remediation, and tailing ponds, and hydroelectric dam reservoirs. Floating Solar Panel is a simple and affordable alternative to ground-mounted photovoltaic system is particularly suitable for countries who cannot afford to waste either land or water. Floating solar panel include floating structure, frames for PV modules, mooring lines & anchors, combiner box, photovoltaic panel, and central inverter.

On the basis of capacity, floating solar panel is segmented in Up to 500 kW, 500 kW to 1 MW, 1 MW to 3 MW and Greater than 3 MW. Majority of the floating solar installations are less than 1 MW. On the basis of type, floating solar panels can be divided into stationary panel and tracking panel. On the basis of panel type, floating solar panel are divide in Mono-crystalline, Poly-crystalline, and Thin Film.
