Agrivoltaico: investi sulle nuove tecnologie
“Parco Agrisolare” è un progetto che mira a sostenere gli investimenti per la realizzazione di impianti di energia solare nel settore agroindustriale, escludendo il consumo di ulteriore suolo.
The development of renewable energies è cruciale to achieve climate neutrality by 2050, to reduce greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere and contain the increase in global average temperature within 1.5 degrees compared to pre-industrial levels.
To achieve these goals, only for solar energy included in Europe, it means installing more or less a photovoltaic park every day as extensive as the largest in existence today. This is said by the International Energy Agency (Iea). Yet, the greatest limitation of photovoltaics is precisely the availability of surfaces..
What is the agrivoltaic?
The agro-voltaic sector wants to unite agricultural interests and renewable energy interests in a single space, with the aim of renewing the agricultural process and restoring efficiency to production, from sowing to harvesting. The energy transition to green sources also represents an opportunity to improve soil quality, mitigate the effects of the climate crisis in agriculture and promote the biodiversity of flora and fauna. This is the case of the agricultural sector, a new frontier for renewables.
What is the investment objective?
Reduce the high energy consumption of the agri-food sector by redeveloping production facilities and using the roofs of buildings to install millions of photovoltaic panels, with an installed power of at least 375,000 kW in 2026. And also to encourage crops and livestock activities in the spaces below and between the row of panels.
What are the benefits?
The benefits are also many in terms of conservation of nature and safeguarding of ecosystem services. Between these:
- Installation of solar panels on agro-livestock buildings, without consuming new soil and redeveloping production facilities.
- Insulation and ventilation of the stables, with improvement of animal welfare.
- Removal of eternity and asbestos from roofs
