Masterclass on Floating Solar Floatovoltaics (FPV) Project Design, Engineering & Maintenance
18th July 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm IST
On 18 July 2020 at 3pm (IST), SolarQuarter is happy to present this online Project Master’s Series on Floating Solar Floatovoltaics (FPV) Project Design, Engineering & Construction.
Installing solar power systems on water bodies is an emerging trend in the energy transition, especially in geographies with limited land availability. Floating solar photovoltaics, or FPV, are an emerging concept that make use of a portion of surface water bodies for siting grid-tied solar energy systems. As PV system prices fall and reliability improves, there is more and more pressure to find suitable sites for grid-tied centralized systems, especially in areas where land use is a critical restraint, and FPV offers an attractive alternative to land-based systems.
This master class will provide an overview by FPV experts of recent work that has been done to assess the FPV potentials, and testing of system concepts, and present examples of successful projects already in place. This class will last for 2 hours and include presentations from domain experts on the topic of floating solar photovoltaics and will also include a cumulative 20 min Q/A session for the audience!
