Agri PV

The NDR pod­cast “Mis­si­on Kli­ma” accom­pa­nied our Mana­ging Direc­tor Mar­kus Haas­tert on a visit to our Agro­So­lar Top plant in the Wend­land regi­on. Why Agri-PV is attrac­ti­ve for far­mers, what this sum­mer has chan­ged and what hurd­les still exist are the topics of this epi­so­de of “Mis­si­on Climate”.

Issue 30 of the SPIEGEL shows our Agri-PV plant in Lüchow and reports on the advan­ta­ges of dual use of land and the impor­t­ance of pro­tec­tion sys­tems in times of cli­ma­te chan­ge. Becau­se with pro­tec­tion sys­tems plants can be pro­tec­ted from extre­me wea­ther con­di­ti­ons with peri­ods of heat but also hea­vy rain.
„We approach Agri-PV from the agri­cul­tu­ral side“, our Mana­ging Direc­tor Mar­kus Haas­tert is quo­ted as say­ing. The gro­wing impor­t­ance of water manage­ment in agri­cul­tu­re is also a topic for him and the SPIEGEL.

Agro­So­lar Euro­pe Mana­ging Direc­tor Mar­kus Haas­tert speaks at the East Ger­man Busi­ness Forum about ener­gy and sup­ply in times of cli­ma­te chan­ge and the impor­t­ance of coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween busi­ness and politics.

„When it comes to inno­va­ti­ve PV con­cepts, Ger­ma­ny is lag­ging behind in the ener­gy tran­si­ti­on, as it so often does. Now, howe­ver, the BMU has announ­ced fun­ding for an agri­cul­tu­ral PV plant on an indus­tri­al sca­le — a first.“ …

Press release of the Federal Envi­ron­ment Minis­try, 11.06.2021

„The Federal Envi­ron­ment Minis­try is fun­ding an inno­va­ti­ve agro-pho­to­vol­taic sys­tem by the Stei­ni­cke com­pa­ny in Lüchow, Lower Sax­o­ny, with more than 400,000 euros. With the pilot pro­ject, agri­cul­tu­ral land is to be used both for food pro­duc­tion and, abo­ve that, for electri­ci­ty genera­ti­on through photovoltaics.“ …

News­pa­per for Muni­ci­pal Eco­no­my (ZkW), 11.06.2021

„Sta­te Secreta­ry Flas­barth per­so­nal­ly han­ded over the fun­ding noti­fi­ca­ti­on to Stein­ecke. The pho­to­vol­taic sys­tem is to gene­ra­te 756,000 kilo­watt hours of solar electri­ci­ty in the future, which will also par­ti­al­ly flow for the farm’s own consumption.“ …

PV Maga­zi­ne, 11.06.2021

„At the Heg­gel­bach orga­nic farm on Lake Con­stance, they want to find out whe­ther far­ming can func­tion under a pho­to­vol­taic sys­tem. The pilot pro­ject with the PV sys­tems is being sci­en­ti­fi­cal­ly accom­pa­nied by the Fraun­ho­fer Insti­tu­te in Frei­burg. Can solar power from the field help to find new are­as for rene­wa­ble energies?“ …

Bay­ri­scher Rund­funk, 19.05.2020

„Food crops com­pe­te with ener­gy crops and solar panels. Fer­ti­le farm­land is beco­m­ing scar­ce. One way out could be agrophotovoltaics“ …

Tele­po­lis, 29.07.2019

„Every day in Ger­ma­ny, 61 hec­ta­res are released for sett­le­ment and trans­port are­as. This cor­re­sponds to about 85 foot­ball fiel­ds. Saving land is the­re­fo­re a decla­red goal of the Federal Government — just like the ener­gy tran­si­ti­on. So-cal­led agro­pho­to­vol­taics could recon­ci­le both.“ …

Deutsch­land­funk, 06.05.2019

„Par­ti­al shading under the solar modu­les incre­a­sed agri­cul­tu­ral crop yiel­ds, and the high solar radia­ti­on incre­a­sed solar power pro­duc­tion. Thus, the land use effi­ci­en­cy was 186 per­cent. “We assu­me that the plants coped bet­ter with the shading under the semi-trans­pa­rent solar modu­les,“ Andrea Ehmann.” …
