Sunfloat

more performance from PV panels

Climate-KIC Start-Up

Founding Year: 2013

Location: The Netherlands

Sunfloat’s mission is to give solar systems up to 50% better performance and install them worldwide in unused waters and rivers near urbanised areas.

The starting point of Sunfloat is their believe that the sun is and should be the major energy source. With this in mind Sunfloat developed floating solar cells.   

The effective yield of these floating solar cells can be up to 40-60% higher than comparable roof mounted PV panels. The investment cost being comparable, the economic advantages are evident. The floating cells can easily be reallocated at low costs. Many waters in urban/industrialized areas are not used and are of low economic and ecological value.
