Identification

The current solar power plant industry is facing several challenges such as: • solar panels occupy a lot of land space and in many European countries there is no space available. • solar roof-top installation is not enough for all customers needs. • power plants are traditionally prompt to have a lower efficiency due to solar panels overheating on the ground (every 1°C of temperature rise corresponds to a drop in the efficiency by 0.5%). To tackle these challenges, The HelioRec’s solution aims to: • keep land space free and deploy the power plants on the water. • provide possibility to generate all necessarily volume of energy for all customers needs. • increase the efficiency of solar panels due to cooling effect from the water. HelioRec's solution is an innovative floating solar technology, designed specially for near-shore locations where half of global population live.
