Agrivoltaics is a novel way to merge solar energy production with agriculture. Instead of competing for space, Agrivoltaics creates a mutually beneficial relationship between its two components. Enabling renewable energy production in the same space as farming while shielding crops from nature’s forces like hail, heavy rain, droughts and high temperatures.
Although we are just at the beginning of understanding the synergistic potential of AgriVoltaics, it is promising to create a positive impact on agricultural practices, for food producers and on nature.
Galp together with its partners is developing a series of actions to learn how to turn this early trend into a sustainable reality.
