Ein Blick auf die Landwirtschaft der Zukunft – mit Agri-Photovoltaik

We are facing a dilemma: The competition between the energy and agricultural sector over land has intensified during the last years. The quite new and simple idea of Agrivoltaics adresses this conflict by allowing for dual land use: agriculture and electricity production via photovoltaic (PV). Get to know this approach and learn about the positive effects and the potential of Agrivoltaics in Janas talk.
