Project Title Floating Photovoltaic Cells
Synopsis

Even as climate change emerges as a pertinent global issue, Singapore has already begun to invest heavily in the production of cleaner energy to reduce its carbon footprint and meet its rising energy demands. Due to its acute land scarcity, it is extremely difficult to employ clean energy generation technology without reducing the available space for other sectors such as housing and industry. Floating solar cells are a potential innovative method of addressing Singapore's needs while abstaining from encroach on its land. Shown to have a promising outlook, floating solar cells have already been employed in countries such as the USA and Britain, in hopes of encouraging global efforts to utilise renewable energy. However, current designs are not optimal and have many negative implications on the surrounding environment. For instance, the opacity of current models severely diminishes the amount of light that is able to reach the aquatic system below, and adverse weather conditions cause stains to accumulate on the panel's surface, reducing its electrical. Thus, this project aims to test and improve the viability of floating photovoltaic cells, making them more resilient to the differing top-water conditions while permitting maximum output.   (192 words)
