Distributed Manufacturing of After Market Flexible Floating Photovoltaic Modules

In this study, an open-source, after-market distributed manufacturing method is proposed to be applied to large flexible PV modules to make flexible FPV systems. The results of this preliminary study indicate that foam-backed FPV is exceptionally promising and should be further investigated with different foams, larger systems and more diverse deployments for longer periods to increase PV deployments.
