Over the past two years, energy prices have soared to record levels across Europe, leading to renewed efforts to harness renewable resources.
Portugal has turned its sights to solar power – and the country is now home to Europe’s largest floating solar farm.
Located on a reservoir in southern Portugal, the farm is the size of five football pitches and is made up of 12,000 photovoltaic panels.
It generates enough energy to power 15,000 homes in the local area.
