No need to go into lenghty detail if there is an excellent video explanation. With thanks to Dave Borlace from “Just have think“.
As with all new ventures, it starts with an intrinsic motivation and an initial idea on the direction of play. We aim to set up projects that combine agriculture and solar power because it packs a punch in terms of impact.
Read on to find out why we are so committed to this amazing combination of agricultural work and sustainable technology.
Through a collaborative effort of likeminded entrepreneurs and advisors (starting in March 2021) we develop projects, which mainly encompass a symbiosis of Photovoltaic energy generation and Agriculture (‘Agrivoltaics’ or ‘Agri-PV’).
It is our goal to achieve sustainable dual use of land by leveraging Agri-PV technology to increase both economic efficiency and sustainable impact on rural communities.
Agri-PV not only yields benefits such as clean energy and more sustainable food production, but also rural communities are (re-)invigorated through the creation of long term agricultural employment.
We believe Agrivoltaics is one of the key areas to contribute to the goals as outlined in the Paris Climate Agreement.
