The floating hybrids are capable of supplying renewable energy to island resorts in the Caribbean and endeavoring to contribute the worldwide implementation of these offshore wind farms, says the CEO Philipp Sinn in his recent press release.
One of the most important facts for us to all to know is about incredible ocean power that can abandon fossil fuels and sequester tons of carbon. The renewable offshore energy can be generated through the powerful winds at offshore, as the wind there blows more strongly and consistently than it does on land. So the clean energy company SINN power has introduced the world-first floating ocean hybrid platform, that produces electricity using different sources of renewable energy. A high tech buoy produces electricity through waves, winds, and solar energy. The uniquely designed SINN power floating system can withstand waves up to six meters high that is 19.6 ft. This floating hybrid system can give an easy access to green energy solutions to the coastal regions.
Extensive research in producing this robust platform for an efficient production of clean energy alternatives, the team is now offering the manufacturers of photovoltaic (PV). The introduction of these photovoltaics are going to extend an opportunity to test their panels on a floating platform in Inarkilo, Greece. The floating hybrids are capable of supplying renewable energy to island resorts in the Caribbean and endeavoring to contribute the worldwide implementation of these offshore wind farms, says the CEO Philipp Sinn in his recent press release.
The offshore wind energy has grown by 30 % in the last decades, along with 30 GW of capacity installed across the world. SINN power used waves, small winds, and PV to offer a customizable energy solution according to the changing climate conditions of any location. It is not only environmentally friendly but also a budget-friendly option as compared to other reliable and proven technologies. Although it is an impeccable alternative source of renewable energy, few concerns are still attached to this concept. As waves, wind and sun are far too powerful and destructive forces so it is still not clear if the platform would be able to withstand tropical storms, corrosion, and severe ocean environment over the years.
Another important factor to be considered is that this technology is not as cheap as wind and solar panels. As it has been pointed out by Eric Wesoff at PV magazine that the wave and tidal energy is stuck in the tracks for decades because of various types of hurdles faced by the company which are of technical and financial type. It has also been warned by the researchers that if marine renewable energy devices such as wind turbines and wave energy converters are not installed carefully, or not taken care afterward, they may cause massive destruction to the marine life. Even though it is a remarkable breakthrough in the times when it is more important than ever to switch towards renewable energy sources. So when we think about renewables we cannot turn our backs from ocean energy that constructively brims the climate solutions especially in the times when economies need to be revitalized which are impacted greatly due to COVID 19 and decrbonization is crucial to mitigate climate chaos in the coming years .
