Welcome to AgriVoltaics2021!

At the first world congress on agrivoltaic systems, AgriVoltaics2020, more than over 350 participants from 38 countries proved the relevance of this interdisciplinary research topic. After this great success, I am glad to welcome you to the second edition: AgriVoltaics2021.

It all traces back to 1981, the year I was born. Adolf Goetzberger founded the Fraunhofer ISE and proposed, together with his colleague Armin Zastrow, for the first time the concept of agrivoltaics. At first glance, the idea looks simple: Elevating photovoltaic modules to maintain the land below for agriculture. Still, for more than two decades, agrivoltaics remained an unproven concept. First prototypes had to wait until photovoltaics developed into a mature technology. Today, 40 years later, we see agrivoltaics entering the markets in many regions of the world with systems and approaches of great diversity. Just as agriculture is. ...

About AgriVoltaics

Agrivoltaics combines the agricultural use of land with the production of electric energy by photovoltaics. It provides solutions for production of food crop and, at the same time, electricity generation under consideration of soil protection and water savings.

AgriVoltaics 2021 is aiming to connect the scientific community and promote international exchange to advance systems and technology. It will cover all aspects, from science to application, reflecting the wide thematic range. The program will comprise scientific presentations, chosen from a reviewing process, and invited high-level keynote talks.

Agrivoltaics – Synergistic Production of Food and Energy

The intelligent dual use of land for agriculture and solar power generation has the potential to counteract the shortage of farmland and contribute to the sustainable development of rural areas. Farmers are given the opportunity to develop new sources of income without losing the productivity of their land. But what are the current developments? And which areas are currently benefiting in particular?

The smarter E talks about these questions with the AgriVoltaics2021 conference chair Max Trommsdorff.
