It’s still not anywhere near as mature as on-land utility-scale solar power, though, so it seems sensible to pull the industry together and collect useful tips and experience for a set of recommended practices. Hence a new global consortium to create just that. Photo courtesy DNV GL The product from this new global consortium is supposed to be published in the first quarter of 2021. Here are some more details from DNV GL , which is the lead organizer of the consortium: “DNV GL has launched a collaborative joint industry project (JIP) with 14 industry participants to develop the industry’s first recommended practice (RP) for floating solar power projects. The planned recommended practice (RP) will provide a commonly recognised standard based on a list of technical requirements for developing safe, reliable and sustainable floating solar projects. … “Following the first projects in 2006, installed capacity for floating solar power was just 10 MW by 2015 but has accelerated considerably since then, reaching 3 GWpeak by the end of 2019. It is estimated […]
