SU-T1138 : Support the development of solar floating photovoltaic energy in Suriname
Project Status: Implementation
The objective of this TC is to promote the development of solar floating PV energy in Suriname, by supporting the establishment of a proper strategic, policy and regulatory framework and by preparing a feasibility study for a floating solar PV installation in the Afobaka hydropower dam, making use of the expertise developed by other countries. This TC will benefit from the experiences and lessons learned of the Japanese policy and regulatory framework for solar floating projects, as well as the strategies and technologies used in Japan to adapt the infrastructure to extreme weather events and to integrate the floating solar systems in existing hydroelectric facilities. There will be a particular attention to issues relevant to LAC such as climate resilience and risk mitigation.
