Corsica, a French island with less than a 320 000 permanent inhabitants and a peak around 650 000 residents on summertime, is located in Mediterranean Sea. Corsica is in an abundant supply of sunshine making it an excellent candidate for solar power generation.
Akuo Energy, a French renewable energy power producer, sought to support the island’s electricity needs by generating a predictable supply of solar energy that it could store and sell to the public power distribution grid. It simultaneously wished to promote its innovative
approach to aquaculture, the farming of fish and other aquatic organisms.
