Growing in the shade of solar power
Whether it’s in temperate climates or more arid regions, co-locating crops and solar panels is a win-win solution. The idea of co-locating photovoltaics and agriculture was first suggested in 1981 by Adolf Goetzberger and Armin Zastrow and it has progressed in Japan since 2004 under the impetus of Akira Nagashima. Many types of crops such as citrus fruits, cucumbers, rice and vines can benefit. The technique...Ca m'intéresse
Solar Panels For All!
There’s no doubt that the focus of the solar power industry is on cutting-edge technology. But that doesn’t mean it has to be expensive or hard to access. Indeed, the boom in photovoltaics has made solar energy more accessible to the public than ever — especially in France. Thanks to such en masse projects cropping up throughout the country, factories and families alike can now commit to this carbon-free...Ca m'intéresse
