AgriVoltaics2020 Conference


AgriVoltaics2020 Conference

Launching Agrivoltaics World-wide

August 26-28, 2020, Perpignan, France


The first international conference on agrivoltaic systems – AgriVoltaics2020 – will take place from August 26-28, 2020 in Perpignan, France.

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.

Time has come to connect the scientific community and promote international exchange to advance systems and technology. The first edition will run under the motto “Launching Agrivoltaics World-wide”

AgriVoltaics2020 will cover all aspects, from science to application, reflecting the wide thematic range. It thus attracts experts from crop science and agronomy, hydrology, solar energy as well as researchers who deal with systemic aspects and carry out e.g. socio-economic studies. The program will comprise of scientific presentations, chosen from a reviewing process, and invited high-level keynote talks. The papers will be published open access in a peer-reviewed conference proceedings volume with AIP, the American Institute of Physics.

An exhibition, a conference dinner and a technical tour visiting the Nidolères Estate and its agrivoltaic system, will supplement the program.

Authors and presenters who have interesting contributions in one of the conference topics and want to be part of the conference program, are asked to submit their research, results or projects for presentation at the conference by March 13, 2020. The data must be new, of high quality, and contribute significantly to the increase of knowledge of agrivoltaic systems and technologies.

The event offers a very good opportunity for the industry to show its presence to the international community, to exchange information on current and important developments, as well as proven and innovative technologies in agrivoltaics, and to establish contacts in the future-oriented and growing field of agrivoltaics! Details are listed in the sponsorship or exhibitor package >>

AgriVoltaics2020 attracts:

  • researchers from PV and agriculture (including agronomy, biology and hydrology) and those working “in between”
  • companies such as PV module, mounting systems and tracker manufacturers, EPC companies, renewable energy producers, as well as those providing farm machinery equipment and seed producers
  • conventional and organic farming associations, agricultural federations and similar stakeholder groups
  • experts from politics and finance open for innovative and future-oriented ideas

Initiators of the conference are the scientific institutes INRAé from France and Fraunhofer ISE from Germany, plus PSE Conferences, a conference organizer specialized in renewable energy.
