Eat fruit, bite carbon! We develop agrivoltaic solutions based on a new technology of photovoltaic modules. These modules offer an innovative approach to dynamic agrivoltaics by combining high electricity output (+50%) and adjustable light transmission to ensure a continuous optimization between crop photosynthesis and electricity generation. This is achieved by an optical micro-tracking system which selectively concentrates direct sunlight onto silicon solar cell arrays or transmits the light through the module. The solutions are poised to replace fixed protective structures on crops, such as plastic tunnels on berries or greenhouse roofings, enabling agrivoltaic deployments without land-take. Consumers can then eat energy positive produce. In 2018, Europe had more than 227’000 ha of berry crops [FAO] representing a deployment potential of ~300 GWp....
