Indonesia and Abu Dhabi have signed a joint project development agreement for the world’s largest floating solar plant.
“With a capacity of 200 megawatt (MW), the plant will cover an area of 225 hectares atop the Cirata Reservoir in the West Java province of Indonesia. The 6,000-hectare Cirata Reservoir already powers a 1GW hydroelectric power station. The planned 200MW floating PV project will be mounted on 700,000 floats moored to the bed of the Cirata reservoir and connected by electrical cables to an onshore high-voltage substation.”
Indonesia in particular has announced its intentions to replace 31% of its energy used with renewable energy by 2050.
