On 7 February 2019 Thomson Reuters Foundation reported:
Solar power companies in Southeast Asia that are competing for land with agriculture, industry, and expanding populations have found an innovative alternative: placing floating panels in lakes, dams, reservoirs, and the sea. ... floating solar systems are growing quickly in Asia alongside those on the ground and on roofs, according to the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS).
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
... While floating panels are more expensive to install, they are up to 16 percent more efficient because the water's cooling effect helps reduce thermal losses and extend their life, according to SERIS.
The panels also reduce evaporation from water bodies when temperatures are warm, thus saving freshwater for drinking.
