Agrivoltaics Double harvest for a sustainable future

New ideas for tomorrow’s agriculture

The innovative Agrivoltaics 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.

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.

Agrivoltaics 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
Agrivoltaics 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 Agrivoltaics 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.

Advantages of agri-photovoltaics for agriculture

Agri PV

Each agrivoltaics system is individually and flexibly adaptable – among other things, to the size of the area, the cultivated plant species and the geological conditions.

Agri PV

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

Agri PV

Agricultural machines in different sizes can be used as usual under the agrivoltaics systems.

Agri PV

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.

Agri PV

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

Agri PV

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.

Agri PV

The future trade in CO2 certificates opens up another source of income for farms.

Agri PV

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 agrivoltaics 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.
