Floating solar is now considered to be the “third pillar of the solar industry”, standing firmly alongside rooftop & ground-mounted applications.
It represents a huge potential worldwide with its suitability for development on a large range of water bodies. Now that the floating project applications are scaling up, it becomes increasingly important to optimize the process and minimize the impact, because – in the end: everything has a carbon footprint.
“Since its very beginning and as a first answer to limit the carbon footprint’s increase, Ciel & Terre has developed strong relationships with local partners around the globe to reach the lowest CO2 level for transportation and to offer a competitive supply price. Ciel & Terre has been working hard to improve the carbon footprint of its solutions by considering the Life Cycle of a product (LCA) – from the acquisition of raw materials resources to the final removal of the product (ISO 14040 2006). In partnership with a French Engineering School, Ciel & Terre has conducted the first study to evaluate the carbon footprint of its Hydrelio® aiR system. They identified the main sources of CO2 consumption, from prod to delivery, and the other parameters to be improved in order to develop renewable solutions with the lowest CO2 emissions.”
