Re(4): Energy from space
IP: 1.144.106.243


While playing lawn bowls yesterday,this came to mind also.
This is happening now,space energy will happen soon.
I have patented it,
.You may well mock me!


Floating solar, also referred to as a floating solar array or floating solar farm, refers to an array of photovoltaic panels on a structure that floats on a body of water, typically a reservoir or lake.

Solar cell efficiency refers to the portion of energy in the form of sunlight that can be converted via photovoltaics (PV) into electricity. The efficiency of the solar cells used in a photovoltaic system, in combination with latitude and climate, determines the annual energy output of the system. The significant improvement of efficiency by 19% of solar panels over water has led to the construction of large scale floating solar farms in China, India, the United Kingdom, and Japan.

In addition to water volume retention, floating solar plants provide additional water quality benefits, of particular benefit to potable water infrastructure management. By shading water, floating solar farms also inhibit the growth of water weeds (that require sunlight for photosynthesis). The growth of bacteria, such as giardia and cryptosporidium, is also restricted by water temperature reduction.

The creation of solar farms on urban water supply infrastructure is generally advantageous given there are no costs usually associated with land-based solar farms (land purchase, clearing, maintenance, and insurance against flooding). Such water bodies are usually serviced with high voltage electrical wire to power water pumps and other associated infrastructure, thus new 'poles and wire' grid infrastructure is not required.

In order that the renewable energy generated is not wasted, and does not become negatively disruptive to the overall energy system, battery storage should be installed between the point of generation and the grid system. The generally accepted ratio of generation to storage is 1:4.1, however given the efficiency of floating solar vis a vis traditional land-based systems, it is prudent to establish floating solar farms with concomitant storage in a ratio of 1:5 (for example, the power generated in a 40MW floating solar farm should be stored in a 200MWh battery).

I am happy to answer any questions.
William.
