We work at the interface of research and innovation, feeding fundamental understanding of how water bodies work into floatovoltaic location, design and operation decisions and developments. Our driving aim across all our activities is to ensure that if floatovoltaic systems are installed they maximise positive impacts on the water body and minimise deleterious effects. To achieve this we draw on a suite of laboratory, field, and modelling competencies and a range of disciplines.
We take a collaborative approach to our research and innovation activities, working with cross-sectoral teams of project partners, and draw on an extensive international network of researchers. The topicality of our research and innovation activities presents a range of funding streams, from fully industry funded to research council funding that only requires in-kind support from the floatovoltaic sector, both in the UK and overseas.
