Floating solar plants are a well-thought-out alternate option to tackle land availability issues. This concept involves installing solar panels on floats placed on dams, lakes and similar water bodies. Floating solar makes intuitive sense in geographies with high land costs and poor availability. Floating solar is a definite reprieve for states that are a significant market for more renewable energy but with little land to spare, as is the case with Uttar Pradesh. The global floating solar market is driven by Asian countries, with China and Japan being home to bulk of the existing operational capacity of 259 MW.
