The demand for electricity is at an all-time high because of the current energy crisis, so new and innovative ways to generate power are greatly welcomed. Especially cleaner, sustainable sources.
The problem with solar power is that the infrastructure takes up significant land space, regardless of how effective and efficient solar technology is. The solution to this appears to be so obvious that it is almost embarrassing to learn that the concept is brand new.
The solution is to have solar panels floating on water, solving the landmass issue, and is perfect to gather as much sunlight as efficiently as possible.
China has now invested heavily in their very own floating solar farm, located roughly 150km south of Shanghai. It's called the Hangzhou Fengling Electricity Science Technology Solar Park.
This floating solar farm is now the biggest in the world, and supplies over 352 Million kWh to hundreds of thousands of homes across the neighbouring residential areas. And, it is perfectly green!
Take a look at the video below by the YouTube channel, Tech Vision, on The World's Largest Floating Solar Farm.
