Climate change has highlighted the need for continued development and expansion of renewable energy. Floating solar has been proposed as an efficient solution to meeting energy demands with a minimal footprint. This project with collaborators at OSU aims to model the ecological implications of floating solar for freshwater habitats as part of a larger DOE SETO project with INL and NREL.
