Abstract: The hybridisation of offshore renewable wind and solar energy resources is one of the emerging trends in ocean energy technologies. Said hybridisation is expected to become an integral part of the world’s energy transition. Accordingly, floating solar photovoltaic (FSPV) power plants, in which photovoltaic modules are deployed on large water surfaces, have recently been attracting much interest. Along these lines, adding FSPV to the offshore energy mix is one of the new frontiers of offshore technologies with promising growth trends.
