Floating photovoltaics may reduce the risk of hydro-dominated energy development in Africa

Nature Energy, Published online: 12 April 2024; doi:10.1038/s41560-024-01510-0A new study finds that strategically integrating floating solar panels on reservoirs could substitute 20–100% of Africa’s planned hydropower by 2050. For the Zambezi watercourse, this approach generates a more stable electricity supply compared with hydro-dominated development.
