Our cover feature explores why floating solar may not have fulfilled its potential. However, as you’ll read, obstacles to ‘floatovoltaics’ are rapidly being sidestepped, and the sub-sector looks primed and ready for a fruitful 2021.

Meanwhile, we also take a dedicated look at some of the new technologies and approaches that are finding latent capacity on grids across the world as renewables proliferation accelerates.

Other features in this issue include:
