With the future diminishment of fossil fuels there is a need to look for clean energy sources,
and Offshore Solar power projects is a fitting solution to such a need.
Regions where land is a scarce resource and per capita land availability is low, development of offshore solar power projects is recommended. Further, when Offshore solar is placed alongside Offshore wind, more energy can be produced for the same area of sea.
Offshore Solar perfectly complements Offshore wind and can increase annual energy production and financial returns for developers and operators. Additionally, the combination of marine renewable energies is a novel solution that reduces the associated operation and maintenance costs.
Solar floating photovoltaic systems show enormous potential as part of this marine renewable energy mix. The combination of Offshore Solar and Offshore Wind offers and more consistent power supply since the winters are more windy while summers are more bright and radiant.
