Rosa-Clot says while PV panels on buildings or fields use valuable farmland, lose energy through overheating and look ugly, his flower-petal-shaped panels come without these potential problems. The flat, rotating panels are winged by reflectors and sit on raft-like structures, anchored to the lakebed with a pylon.
The Floating Tracking Cooling Concentrator (FTCC) system takes advantage of unused areas of artificial reservoirs or disused quarries and the water keeps the panels cool. Reflectors maximize solar capture.
