The potential of Agri-PV in Africa

In this webinar, SolarPower Europe in collaboration with GET.invest, will present the potential of Agri-PV for African markets and lessons learnt from other regions which have successfully implemented this innovative solution.

In developing countries, millions of people inhabit rural areas in poverty conditions, relying on agricultural activities for income or sustenance. Small-scale farmers often do not have access to reliable sources of power, and those who do, end up relying on highly pollutant and inefficient diesel-powered solutions.

Agricultural photovoltaics, or Agri-PV, are technical solutions which combine agricultural infrastructure and solar PV. These hold a high potential to simultaneously enable the sustainable agriculture and clean energy transitions across Africa. Agri-PV can optimize agricultural land use, provide new revenue streams for rural communities, and enable the adaptation of agriculture to help combat climate change. In this webinar, SolarPower Europe in collaboration with – a European programme supported by the European Union, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Austria – will present the potential of Agri-PV for African markets and lessons learnt from other regions which have successfully implemented this innovative solution.
