Double harvest for a sustainable future

New ide­as for tomorrow’s agriculture

The inno­va­ti­ve agri-pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems from Agro­So­lar Euro­pe intel­li­gent­ly com­bi­ne agri­cul­tu­re with rene­wa­ble power genera­ti­on. For this pur­po­se, solar modu­les for electri­ci­ty genera­ti­on are erec­ted abo­ve and bet­ween agri­cul­tu­ral are­as in such a way that they can con­ti­nue to be far­med profitably.

Indi­vi­du­al PV sys­tem depen­ding on the type of plant

A real win-win situa­ti­on that bene­fits not only the cli­ma­te and secu­ri­ty of sup­ply, but also far­mers: This is becau­se the “dou­ble har­vest” enab­les inco­me diver­si­fi­ca­ti­on and thus con­tri­bu­tes to the sus­tainab­le streng­t­he­ning of farms and rural areas.

Good for the climate — good for the soil 

Cli­ma­te chan­ge and its con­se­quen­ces are alrea­dy being felt around the world — espe­cial­ly in the agri­cul­tu­ral sec­tor: This is becau­se cli­ma­tic chan­ges and wea­ther extre­mes are making it dif­fi­cult to grow food in many pla­ces, while popu­la­ti­on growth is incre­a­sing the demand. At the same time, the demand for rene­wa­ble ener­gy such as solar power is gro­wing world­wi­de. This is the only way to replace fos­sil fuels in the medi­um term and curb cli­ma­te change.

The pro­blem: Lar­ge are­as of land are nee­ded both for agri­cul­tu­re and for the con­struc­tion of con­ven­tio­nal pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems. As a result, agri­cul­tu­re and solar ener­gy have so far often been in com­pe­ti­ti­on with each other.

Agri-Pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems from Agro­So­lar Euro­pe are an inno­va­ti­ve and prac­ti­cal solu­ti­on to this pro­blem. This is becau­se they remo­ve the com­pe­ti­ti­on for land bet­ween food and ener­gy har­ve­sts and even enab­le a signi­fi­cant incre­a­se in land use effi­ci­en­cy — cur­r­ent­ly up to 186 %.

Individual like nature:
Our system types 

The requi­re­ments of farms are as varied as the needs that crops have for soils and micro­cli­ma­tes: For examp­le, a viney­ard or an orchard has dif­fe­rent manage­ment requi­re­ments than a pota­to field of several hectares.

That is why Agro­So­lar Euro­pe has deve­lo­ped dif­fe­rent agri-pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems that can be opti­mal­ly adap­ted to the respec­ti­ve con­di­ti­ons. Among other things, the size of the area, the plant spe­ci­es grown and the geo­lo­gi­cal con­di­ti­ons are taken into account.

Healthy growth
for plants and farms 

For most fruit and vege­ta­ble plants, our Agri-Pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems pro­vi­de the best con­di­ti­ons for healt­hy growth: This is becau­se the par­ti­al roofing by the solar modu­les pro­vi­des pro­tec­tion against too much heat and solar radia­ti­on as well as hail, frost and drought dama­ge. In addi­ti­on, the soils can store a grea­ter amount of water, which has a posi­ti­ve effect on crop yiel­ds, espe­cial­ly for shade crops and in dry regi­ons, and redu­ces the need for irri­ga­ti­on by up to 20%. At the same time, more CO2 can be bound in the soil through an incre­a­sed humus con­tent, which opens up an addi­tio­nal source of inco­me through future cer­ti­fi­ca­te trading.

Each agri-pho­to­vol­taic sys­tem is indi­vi­du­al­ly and fle­xi­b­ly adap­ta­ble — among other things, to the size of the area, the cul­ti­va­ted plant spe­ci­es and the geo­lo­gi­cal conditions.

Agri-Pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems pro­tect plants and crops from wea­ther extre­mes such as heat, drought, hea­vy rain, hail and wind.

Agri­cul­tu­ral machi­nes in dif­fe­rent sizes can be used as usu­al under the agri-pho­to­vol­taic systems.

The irri­ga­ti­on requi­re­ment of agri­cul­tu­ral land is redu­ced by up to 20 per­cent, and the water sto­rage capa­ci­ty of the soil is increased.

Agri PV

Car­bon Far­ming: With agri-pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems, humus can be built up in a con­trol­led man­ner, which redu­ces fer­ti­li­ser con­sump­ti­on and enab­les more CO2 to be stored in the soil.

The use of agri-pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems boosts crop yiel­ds and thus enab­les hig­her inco­me for the farm.

Fle­xi­ble and pro­fi­ta­ble: In addi­ti­on to inves­ting in its own sys­tem, Agro­So­lar Euro­pe also offers a lea­se model, so that the farm has no expen­se whatsoever with the con­struc­tion and sup­ply marketing.

In addi­ti­on to the alrea­dy exis­ting “tra­ckers” for the auto­ma­tic align­ment of pho­to­vol­taic modu­les, inte­gra­ted sys­tems for the use of sto­rage tech­no­lo­gies and irri­ga­ti­on tech­ni­ques as well as the inte­gra­ti­on of robo­tics and auto­ma­ti­on pro­ces­ses are planned.

“We have estab­lis­hed an agri­cul­tu­ral cam­pus in Ber­lin to advi­se far­mers on how to diver­si­fy their inco­me through the use of our Agri-Pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems. Our pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems make it pos­si­ble to cou­p­le the agri­cul­tu­ral cul­ti­va­ti­on of land with the simul­ta­ne­ous genera­ti­on of solar power. We thus pro­mo­te sus­tainab­le deve­lo­p­ment in Ger­ma­ny and throughout Euro­pe and iden­ti­fy with the 17 Sus­tainab­le Deve­lo­p­ment Goals, the glo­bal plan to pro­mo­te sus­tainab­le peace, pro­spe­ri­ty as well as to pro­tect our planet.”

Visions and innovations for a climate-friendly future 

Tog­e­ther with inno­va­ti­ve play­ers from the agri­cul­tu­ral sec­tor and in coope­ra­ti­on with our deve­lo­p­ment cent­re in Trins, Aus­tria, we are con­stant­ly deve­lo­ping our Agri-Pho­to­vol­taic sys­tems, which are pre­cise­ly tailo­red to the needs of the agri­cul­tu­ral sec­tor. Through con­stant exchan­ge with farms and the solar indus­try, we are per­fec­ting our sys­tems — for a sus­tainab­le, cli­ma­te-friend­ly future and safe food and electri­ci­ty supply.
