Oceans of Energy
The first – and only - in the world operating offshore solar farms at full sea.
OFFSHORE SOLAR: ABUNDANT, CLEAN AND AFFORDABLE ENERGY FOR ALL
Our solar panels at sea provide clean electricity to the world. Solar panels offer the most successful way of harvesting renewable energy at this time. Until now solar panels are mostly installed on land. However, land space is scarce and mostly needed for housing, recreation, industry, roads, and agriculture. And even if all of our land space (including roads, houses and fields) would be paved with solar panels, this still would not generate enough power to meet our (growing) renewable energy demand. The future lies at sea. 40% of the world’s population lives within 100 kilometers of the coast. The planet’s oceans and seas offer a lot of space. With only a fraction of that space covered by solar panels, a lot of energy can be generated – even more then needed. Offshore solar is a game changer in the energy transition.
OFFSHORE SOLAR: PROVEN TRACK-RECORD
Oceans of Energy is the first – and only – company in the world operating an offshore solar farm at full sea. It started with the near-shore farm installation in 2019 on the North Sea, which moved in 2020 to a location far offshore in relentless ocean conditions. Our offshore solar farm system has been tested by multiple storms and it does what its designed to do; withstand extreme rough sea conditions (windforces 12 Bft with wave heights up to 10 meters). Today our system is still full operation and our technology can be applied in any water, for any coastal region or island in the world. Currently we are expanding our offshore solar farm to 1 MW in 2022 and to 10 MW in 2023. Our projects:
OFFSHORE SOLAR: IN HARMONY WITH NATURE
We care about the marine environment. It is our goal to bring abundant clean energy to the world using the vast space at sea without jeopardizing nature. Therefore, we invest substantially in environmental and ocean research, as part of our core business. We strive to minimize negative impact and maximize positive impacts. We believe in creating eco-synergies that can bring added value to local ecosystems and its people. Environmental monitoring and research is incorporated in all our projects. Our Ecology & Sustainable Research team works closely with a network of researchers from top tier (independent) institutes. We test scientific hypotheses through numerical and physical modelling, field testing and continuous monitoring at each project. And we constantly improve our design and materials to be most eco-friendly.
