Global Forecast in floating solar to 2030
The Floating Solar market will emerge far more rapidly than anyone has previously forecast and will accumulate as much as 62 GW of capacity over as little as 10 years.
The key is opening up the market for reservoirs on dams, which will make up over 80% of the global installed marketplace. Huge sums of money are available from development banks to make this happen.
Already we are seeing massive projects in China, India and South Korea, which will change the nature of the marketplace to one made up of “mega-scale” GW plus projects, from the commonplace 1 MW projects of today and already this segment has a 10 GW pipeline.
The run rate for floating solar projects will move from 300 MW a year globally, to 9.4 GW in 2030, with some 8 GW of that all about adding solar capabilities to existing hydro reservoirs.
