Agrivoltaics / Dual Use Solar
March 23 - March 24
The widespread adoption and development of solar across a nearly full range of landscapes, topographies and geographies has triggered multiple “dual use” innovations. Among the most promising of these is agrivoltaics: the co-location of solar with natural resource practices broadly characterized as agriculture. The inclusion of crops, pollinating, sheep grazing and other elements can amplify the economics and utility of any solar project – whether sited in rural areas where large solar arrays proliferate or even in more constrained, urban development settings.
This symposium will present a comprehensive survey of agrivoltaic concepts as they are applied in two related – but, distinct – scenarios: 1) Ag features where solar is the primary land use, and 2) solar arrays where Ag is the primary land use (think farms, ranches, etc.).
