In China earned the world's largest floating solar power plant

China for many years developed its production in order to secure a leading position and to bypass the rest of the state on volumes of the produced goods. In the end, the country began to suffocate from the smog of the giant factories. It was urgent to do something, so the leadership has decided to urgently go to . Recently, the Chinese authorities announced that the world's largest floating , finally, was commissioned and connected to the local power grid.

Located near the city of Huainan in Anhui province a new floating power plant has a capacity of 40 megawatts and was developed by engineers at Sungrow Power Supply Co. It is particularly ironic in this whole story is that the power plant was placed in the area of the flooded coal mine, which once provided the country of fossil fuels polluting the atmosphere. Last year the water was lowered 20-megawatt solar power plant, but China plans to actively increase the number of such structures in the coming years.

Floating solar power plants are becoming increasingly popular thanks to their unique design and lack of need for the allocation of land to accommodate them. In addition, these plants slow down the evaporation of water that scientists think it's a plus for the environment. A low temperature near the surface of the sea or ocean, which allows effective cooling of the photovoltaic panels and reduces the risk of failure. By 2020 China plans to increase the amount of energy obtained from solar power plants of up to 20% of the total consumption.
