Years ago floatovoltaics, or floating solar photovoltaic plants, got under my radar as a great solution to generate more electricity from dams (and lakes, and any other type of water bodies). Now, the amazing Youtube channel Fully Charged has published a great video that features such a plant in Portugal.
Without further ado, I’ll let you enjoy the 10-minute video :
Now if only floatvoltaics could become mainstream… Located on dam reservoirs, this is really a two birds fed with one scone (!) opportunity.
Globally the potential of floatovoltaics is staggering, but that will be for another article. So stay tuned for more on this topic and much much more !
