A group of Italian scientific institutions has released UNI/PdR 148:2023, a comprehensive set of regulatory guidelines for the implementation of agrivoltaic projects.

The group includes Italian research agency ENEA, the Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, Italian Standardization Body UNI, and Italy-based agrivoltaics specialist REM TEC.

The newly issued regulations encompass three crucial dimensions of agrivoltaics: electricity generation, agricultural output, and landscape preservation.
