Our Partnership Project – Agrivoltaics Research
The Agrivoltaics Technology Project is conducted by the Brew-Hammond Energy Centre of KNUST in Ghana, by partnering with Soluzione Solare.
The Agrivoltaics research activity of the KNUST is planned to setup in two sites (North and South Ghana).
The Main Goal is to Strengthen National Innovation Systems for Diffusion and Market Development at the Water-Energy-Food Nexus.
To know about what Agrivoltaics fundamentally mean?
The simultaneous use of land for solar photovoltaic electricity generation and agriculture is known as agrivoltaics. The design of agrivoltaic facilities may need to compromise on goals like maximizing crop yield, crop quality, and energy production because the coexistence of solar panels and crops suggests a sharing of light between these two types of production. However, in some instances crop yield rises as a result of the solar panels’ shade reducing some of the stress that high temperatures and UV damage cause on plants.
Through the creation of synergies between renewable energies and agriculture, agrovoltaics offers an effective, efficient, and innovative solution to the competition for land use while promoting sustainable rural development and the preservation of biodiversity and the environment.
The introduction of the novel agrivoltaics system in dryland regions is a great step towards renewable energy and food production security in deprived rural areas where farming is the dominant occupation.
