Be at the World's Leading Floating Solar PV Summit in 2023!

Solar Photovoltaic Power is amongst the fastest-growing sources of renewable energy and power generation. As compared to Solar Panels that are mounted on rooftops or as part of solar farms, Floating Solar Photovoltaic (PV) farms mount Solar Panels on platforms that float on bodies of water and are much more challenging and costly to build and operate compared to land-based ones.

But even so, the global demand for Floating Solar PV farms is drastically growing due to its significant benefits of not taking up valuable space on land and more efficient performance of Solar PV Panels floating on water bodies due to the cooling effect.

While there are more Floating Solar PV installations in recent years, there is still a lack of reliable data and proven track records of the Floating Solar PV concept which may lead to developers & companies facing major issues when sourcing funds & assessing the project feasibility for Floating Solar PV projects. Not only is it hard to analyse the economic viability of Floating Solar PV projects, but financiers are also less likely to provide funding to Floating Solar PV projects as compared to rooftop solar PV and solar farm projects.

Not to mention the technical complexity when it comes to designing, building & operating the Floating Solar PV plants on water bodies, there are various issues that may surface like electrical safety, anchoring & mooring issues, and operations & maintenance.

There is also constant scepticism towards Floating Solar PV projects as many are unsure that the Return-On-Investment would outweigh the high expenditure used to build the installations & regular maintenance needed to prevent corrosion & degradation. Not much information on the efficacy of Floating Solar PV projects can be found, therefore, there is no solid evidence that it will generate better revenue as compared to other Solar PV projects.

Hence, it is important to hold this event for industry attendees & project developers to understand what other active Floating Solar PV industry players are doing to overcome the various challenges faced in their Floating Solar PV projects and utilise these proven solutions & best practices to help their Floating Solar PV projects succeed.

Equip Global is pleased to announce the dates for the leading 6th Floating Solar PV Summit 2023 that will be happening Zoom Online on 11 - 13 April 2023. Back by popular demand, this annual summit is the best platform for global industry experts in the Floating Solar PV industry to gather for invaluable networking and learning opportunities.
