HYDROGEN AND PHOTOVOLTAIC ELECTRIFICATION ON FARM

Project description

A dual-use approach for energy and food production

Photovoltaics (PV) has emerged as a preferable renewable energy source. However, PV parks are installed on land areas, restricting the available land for crop farming. The EU-funded HyPErFarm project proposes the use of combined agrivoltaic systems that allow food production to continue on land used by PV parks. By engaging several stakeholders, the project aims to optimise viable agrivoltaic business models and test the marketability of the solution. It will work on new innovative technologies and crop production methods, organise stakeholder innovation workshops and encourage citizen/consumer acceptance. Moreover, HyPErFarm will develop and demonstrate new systems for the use and distribution of energy produced on the farm through e-robots, heat pumps, hydrogen production and e-driven pyrolysis of biomass side streams.
