China just linked the world's largest floating solar power plant to the grid. It is located in a former mining area where water accumulated and later mineralized due to collapse in the soil.
India will be home to the world's largest solar power plant. This means India is set to be the third biggest solar market as early as 2017.
With the goal of India to replace coal with cheaper solar power by 2020, the South Asian country has recently unveiled the world's largest solar power plant, making it the world's third largest solar power market next year.
