Japan's First Offshore Floating Solar by Solarduck and Partners
SolarDuck B.V. (the Netherlands), Tokyu Land Corporation (Japan), and Everblue Technologies Inc. (Japan) have said that their proposal for Japan's first offshore floating solar power generation and automated sailing boat technology demonstration has been chosen as of November 4, 2022, as part of the Tokyo Bay eSG Project, an innovative project led by the Bureau of Policy Planning of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
This project is part of the Tokyo Bay eSG Project, which aims to build a sustainable city that will last 50 to 100 years by using cutting-edge technologies in the areas of "cutting-edge renewable energy," "next-generation mobility," and "environmental improvement and resource recycling" in the central breakwater area. The project intends to realise the most advanced technology in the world in the Tokyo Bay Area.
The three companies want to make it possible for people in the Tokyo Bay Area to produce and use their own energy in the future. They plan to do this by putting Japan's first "offshore floating photovoltaic power generation system" to use, using renewable energy made on the ocean to power electric boats, and showing how storage batteries can be moved by boat.
