Abstract: A big problem to be addressed is the effects that climate change produces, specifically on lakes and water reservoirs. A possible solution to this is using a relatively new technology called Floating Photovoltaics Systems. These systems have the capability to generate electricity from solar energy while sheltering the water they float on from the solar rays. This reduces water evaporation and algae growth, improves the water quality, and keeps the system passively cooled. This paper focuses on showing that technologies such as these are the future to take action against climate change effects on lakes and water reservoirs, and FPV is the main one to focus on at the moment, as it is the most effective one.
