The New Frontier of Agri-Voltaic Systems

9 November 2023, Key Energy 2023, Rimini Fiera, Italy, 11:30-13:30

Energy policy needs acceleration in PV development; although all usable rooftops of existing and new buildings and all industrial, commercial and artisanal areas should be exploited to the fullest extent possible, portions of agricultural areas will also have to be identified in order to meet the 2030 targets. There are already degraded agricultural areas on the national territory, such as those in quarries, or unproductive agricultural areas or unused agricultural areas. Today with agri-voltaic systems we have the opportunity to recover these areas, a system in which agricultural activity and that of electricity production merge, preserving the agricultural vocation of the land. The energy transition pushes us more and more to combine the activities of historical sectors with those of modern sectors, and the agrivoltaic system is the element of modernization of the land and a tool for the transformation of the agrarian landscape.
