Summary

Agrovoltaics are novel systems which allow arable land to be shared for both crop production and to generate solar energy. Originated at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy ISE and first rolled-out in Japan, this promising technology has recently been the subject of major European studies as interest in a potential response address the globally rising demand for food and energy. This session will consider how energy generation and food production can co-exist, examine the concepts developed to date - including modular concepts based on bifacial solar cells - and discuss the prospects for the future of agrovoltaics. This session is jointly organized by Intersolar and Fraunhofer ISE.
