Future Unicorn Award nominee: Ocean Sun

Future Unicorn Award 2021

Ocean Sun is a solution provider and design architect for floating solar power plants.

Ocean Sun’s core innovation, a floating power system with solar panels mounted on a thin hydroelastic membrane, offers a unique solution to the world’s energy needs at world-beating cost levels enabled by the water-cooling effect, which lowers the solar panels’ operating temperature and increases power output. The flexible membrane is easy to transport and is the fastest system to install. The clever architecture also offers better seaworthiness and has higher structural resistance to strong winds such as hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons.
