Prospects of Сreating Аloating Solar Power Plants in Russia

DOI: 10.33917/es-7.173.2020.126-135

Technologies for converting solar energy into electrical energy are constantly improved, new methods of using solar energy are emerging in order to increase efficiency and save space. One of such methods is application of special buoyancy modules and restraints systems for installing solar power plants in water basins. The main technologies and operation principle of floating solar power plants (SPP) are described. Advantages and disadvantages of using floating solar power plants in comparison with ground-based solar power plants are listed and substantiated. Assessment of potential of installing floating SPP at hydroelectric power plants (HPP) in Russia is given. Prospects for the use of floating SPP in open water areas are discussed and  examples of such projects are listed

Sunlight Against Coal

DOI: 10.33917/es-3.169.2020.134-141

The article dwells on the topic of competition between coal and solar energy as types of fuel. The authors provide a comparison of the installed capacity of a virtual solar power station and an existing coal power station located within the land allotment of a coal mine. The development prospects of the coal industry in terms of thermal coal are shown.
