Statkraft Albania received a preliminary authorization from the Government of Albania for the implementation of a floating solar plant at Banja with a feed-in-tariff in December 2018.

The design of the Ocean Sun array includes dual-glass, silicon crystalline modules with customized junction box, cables and attachment features. The modules are attached to the membrane using a unique fixation mechanism, the company explains. This enables good thermal contact with the water body, and the membrane is carefully designed to withstand mechanical stress and sun exposure, it adds.

Since the modules are in close contact with the water, the low water temperature provides excellent cooling of the cells, which permits energy generation at higher efficiency levels than a module fixed in the air.

One side benefit of the membrane design, which will readily support the weight of several workers, is that the floaters will reduce underwater sunlight exposure, the company says. This can mitigate the problem of algae growth, often harmful to marine life, and will reduce evaporation, a growing concern in many warm and dry geographical areas, Ocean Sun says.

Ocean Sun offers three sizes of modular arrays, starting with the CF 500, the flagship circular design with 500 kilowatt-peak, a diameter of 72 meters and an area of about 4,000 square meters. The CF 200 is a 200 kWp circular floater with a diameter of 50 meters and an area of about 2,000 square meters, the company says.

Now we made a small online Calculator to compare the different Technologies. Also common floating Applications are more costly, but will benefit from the Albedo of Water. On the other side cooled Modules are performing better: Try to play with the different configurations an make your decision.

Through a family business founded in 1985, I have been working independently with subsidiaries companies, for over 20 years in the field of computer science and renewable energies.

Even as a child, I was fascinated by the family's small hydropower plant in Styria and since then I have been in flames for sustainable solutions.

TOP 5 Most Efficient Commercial Available Solar Panels March of 2020
he photovoltaic industry has made tremendous progress and is the cheapest way to build new electricity production capacity worldwide. Another positive feature is that photovoltaics produce no emissions. Finally, the danger of fine dust as a possible intensifier of the course of a coronavirus disease has also caught the attention of the media. ? We should focus much more on resilient and decentralized solar energy, also to improve the health, living conditions and financial
Calculate Corona doubling by yourself
"The greatest weakness of humanity is its inability to understand the exponential function," said physicist Al Bartlett in his book "The Essential Exponential!" written. For Example there are 112 (known) corona cases in Austria today and the rate of duplication (outside of China) is 4 days. So could there be 1 million cases in Austria in just over a month? Do the calculations yourself with this doubling calculator: http://www.pv4.eu/calculate-corona-doubling-by-yourself_2048.html But you can use
Ski Lift can run on photovoltaic electricity of the summer
“In summer, weights are transported up the mountain and left in the valley in winter, and the photovoltaic energy of summer is available in dark winter.” Bill Gates explained his investment in lift or gravitational energy storage technology in a similar way. Batteries are getting cheaper and cheaper and will soon offer a cheap, short-term solution for storing energy for daily energy needs. However, the long-term storage capacity of batteries, for example
Are rare earths used in Solar Panels and Batteries
According to a report by ADEME , the earths are not so rare. Especially in photovoltaic or solar energy and battery technologies are not widely used. Despite their name, they are not that rare. The rare earth consumption in the area of ​​the generation of renewable energies is mainly due to the use of permanent magnets for offshore wind energy, which are only used by a small part of the wind
