If you not only want to harvest the yield from a photovoltaic system, but also want to farm, you need special equipment. Not every tracker can grow wheat, oats, or raspberries under its “wings”. The path to a suitable tracker is a long development story that brings together farmers, equipment manufacturers and the energy sector.

In the webinar, we learn from the tracker manufacturer Valmont-Solar about the development steps that went into the design of their Agri-PV tracker, Convert Tracker. The height, structure and anchoring in the ground must be precisely matched to the subsequent use. Chiara Tarisciotti, Regional Engineering Manager for EMEA at Valmont Solar, will explain the innovations and technical features of the manufacturer’s Convert Tracker, in this webinar.

In addition, Marco Martini, Environmental Engineer from Enel Green Power will join us and provide a view on the investment situation of Agri-PV and what drives big energy companies into venturing into this field. Joining him will be Oltis Dallto, Agri-PV Manager from Juwi Italy, who will also share their experiences with Agri-PV projects from an EPC contractor’s perspective in this webinar. We will go into more detail on legal and energy-economic issues and learn what is important in such projects.

Using two case studies from northern Italy, we will then also look at what Agri-PV with the special tracker looks like in practice. Over the next two years, some EU funding pots will be made available for Agri-PV and many member states will be looking for creative solutions to meet their targets for the expansion of renewable energies. This could be a watershed year for Agri-PV, says Valmont Solar.

In this webinar:

  • History of the development of Agri-PV-Tracker, Convert Tracker
  • Current global landscape of agrivoltaic
  • Practical solutions to operational challenges
  • Future prospects and upcoming trends
  • Case-studies of farming and PV
  • Q&A

Questions can be submitted beforehand in the comments window when registering or in the chat during the live webinar. Marian Willuhn, editor at pv magazine will be the moderator of this webinar.

Registration for this pv magazine webinar is free of charge.
