The Energy Institute Singapore Branch is pleased to invite you to our upcoming event.

Event details:

The first modest systems were installed in Japan and California in 2007 and 2008 but it wasn’t until 2015 that we saw the introduction of significant floating solar capacity. China was a first mover bringing online the 70 MW CECEP Floating Solar Farm in 2019 and more recently the huge 320 MW. Dezhou Dingzhuang floating PV array and the 150 MW Three Gorges Floating Solar Farm. The 45 MW Sirindhorn Dam Floating Solar Farm in Thailand began operating in 2021 and Tata Power commissioned India's largest floating solar power project in Kayamkulam, Kerala in 2022.

In Singapore Sembcorp Industries commissioned one of the world’s largest inland floating solar photovoltaic (PV) solar farms in 2021 on the Tengeh Reservoir in Tuas. More floating solar facilities are under development in Singapore – and many other countries around the world.

What is driving interest in floating solar? Our panel will discuss this plus the pro’s and cons, and the opportunities. We shall also hear how floating solar fits into Singapore’s energy mix as we move towards Carbon Net Zero and a green electricity supply.

The evening’s programme will begin with networking from 6pm, and the main event will begin at 6:30pm.
