Dutch Water Authority Rivierenland, Blue21, Hakkers BV and TU Delft recently signed an agreement to collectively realise a revolutionary method for generating solar energy on water.
The project operates under the name INNOZOWA, which is derived from the Dutch product description: innovatieve (innovative) zon-pv (Solar PV; solar panels) op (on) water (water). The intention is to develop a flexible design of floating solar panels on inland waters and make optimal use of the available surface area, all at a competitive price.
Moreover, within INNOZOWA, opportunities are examined to create added value for local ecology.
