A growing number of governments around the world face a double-edged challenge: How can they generate more clean solar power in future while ensuring that enough arable land is available to grow food for an increasing population? One proposed solution is a novel system known as Agri-Photovoltaics - the co-development of land for both solar PV and agricultural applications. Making sure neither use impairs the other, however, is a delicate task. Speakers will examine this unique concept and the technologies involved as well as the lessons learned to date and prospects for the future.
