If it’s now possible to deploy floating wind turbines, can we also deploy solar PV systems on the water? You bet! RWE is now exploring the prospects for stand-alone and hybrid offshore solar photovoltaics to offer new ways to deliver cost competitive energy in our journey to Net Zero.
RWE has more than 20 years’ experience in the construction and operation of solar power plants. Offshore solar has the potential to be an exciting evolution of onshore and lake-based technology and opens a new door to gigawatt-scale solar energy generation, particularly for markets who are experiencing the challenge of land scarcity. RWE is well positioned to kick-start early development of offshore solar and has a proven track record in early adoption and commercialisation of new technologies.
