worlds largest floating solar power plant

In China, the city of Huainan in the Anhui province, the 40-megawatt solar power plant facility was created by PV inverter manufacturer Sungrow Power Supply Co.

  Poetic? The lake is sited over a former coal mining area.

Incidentally, there are many species of fish that are happy to live in shade.

Regarding the 2nd comment below, here is a photo of the most efficient solar panel in production (so far! 28/8/2017)

44% efficient solar panels

Well done the physics community


  1. #RenewableEnergy boost for France

    France is to stop granting licences for oil and gas exploration as part of a transition towards environmentally-friendly energy being driven by Emmanuel Macron’s government.

    Nicolas Hulot, the “ecological transition” minister said a law would be passed in the autumn.

    “There will be no new exploration licences for hydrocarbons,” he told BFMTV.

    Around 75 per cent of France’s electricity is currently provided by nuclear power stations, with the industry employing around 200,000 people and led by state-owned EDF.

    A law was passed last year to reduce the nuclear proportion to 50 per cent by 2025, sparking controversy over potential job losses and the closure of up to 20 reactors.

    Mr Macron reinstated his commitment to the law last month but has evaded concrete targets for the ultimate aim of making France run completely on renewable energy.

  2. #RenewableEnergy progress

    44.5% efficient solar panel developed.

    The panel design features very thin layers of different photon-absorbing materials on top of each other. The various layers target different bands of wavelength from incident solar energy, thus becoming the most efficient panels produced so far.

  3. benefits of switching to 100% #RenewableEnergy by 2050

    Stanford University and the University of California at Berkeley have released a new scientific study that produced 100% renewable energy roadmaps for 139 individual countries, representing more than 99% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.

    The study’s 27 co-authors show how available solar, wind, and water resources can be rapidly scaled to create a global energy system that relies entirely on clean, renewable energy for all purposes.

  4. The world is quickly ..and I mean quickly ...being destroyed by humans. Wearing rose coloUred glassed makes one think otherwise. ENJOY!
