SYMBIOSYST investigates innovative systems to go beyond the idea of solar energy production and agriculture as two separate sectors, and find a new synergy where land & crops and photovoltaics can have a mutually beneficial relationship.

The project develops different PV solutions for open field and greenhouse agriculture and their demonstration in four agricultural scenarios, in three different Countries.

The objectives

Demonstrating the feasibility of agri-PV and social acceptance

Adopting monitoring and controlling systems

Limiting the impact of PV on crop yield

Digitalising farming tools

Improving systems for water supply and mitigation of climate change impact

Conducting sustainable agriculture

Involving local organisations

Enhancing biodiversity


The consortium is composed of 18 partners coming from 6 European countries – including the United Kingdom.
