Agrivoltaics: Opportunities for Agriculture and Energy Transition

Agrivoltaics refers to a process for the simultaneous use of land for agricultural crop production and PV electricity production.

Agrivoltaics technology offers a way to expand large-scale photovoltaic systems on open spaces while keeping agricultural land usable as a resource for food production. This is necessary because while fertile farmland must be preserved for agriculture, solar energy is expected to become the main pillar of energy supply in the long term.

Launch of our new agrivoltaics website

Our new homepage on the topic of agrivoltaics is online! The team agrivoltaics at Fraunhofer ISE aims to use the website to connect the agri-PV community and to inform about the state of knowledge and current developments!

We are looking forward to your feedback. Please feel free to use our contact form.
