OBJECTIVE:
The HydroSolar project, co-funded by the European Fund for Regional Development, by the Italian State and the Autonomous Province of Trento, aims to design and implement a newly developed photovoltaic system to be placed on fresh and salt water reservoirs to produce energy in a more efficient and environmentally friendly way. Compared to traditional photovoltaic systems positioned on land, the production of a floating system is superior and does not occupy valuable space that could be used for agriculture, production and residential activities.

TECHNOLOGY:
The technology is based on an innovative floating platform that takes into account resistance to atmospheric agents, specifically wind and waves. The bell-shaped arrangement of the photovoltaic modules in an East-West facing direction avoids the issue of shading between the rows of the modules and creates less wind resistance, thus increasing the safety and reliability of the system.

EXPECTED RESULTS:
The expected results from the use of this photovoltaic application are:

    • greater energy production compared to traditional ground systems due to the albedo effect generated by water reflection, which can reach up to 40% depending on the implementations adopted (cooling of the photovoltaic modules, solar tracking).
    • limiting the proliferation of algae through the shading of the body of water.
    • less water evaporation from the reservoir and therefore conservation of the increasingly precious water resource.
