Creating new synergies between solar energy and agriculture

Thanks to the development of innovative photovoltaic systems for open field and greenhouse agriculture

Design and implementation of fully integrated agri-photovoltaic systems

SYMBIOSYST investigates innovative c-Si modules for agri-photovoltaics to positive influence yields and protect land & crops, and it applies modern precision farming concepts that can bring significant advantages at both production and environmental levels

Photovoltaics and agriculture can have a mutually beneficial relationship with agri-photovoltaic systems

Two agri-PV systems analysed

Open agri-PV

Cultivation of:
horticultural croos characterised by a limited vertical development

fruit trees according to a “classical” and “Guyot” layout

Closed agri-PV

Cultivation of:
horticultural crops in Venlo type greenhouses
