Agro-PV system to grow lamb's lettuce
Our Research Partner Jürg Rohrer from ZHAW has initiated a project using agro-pv plants to grow a specific type of salad: lamb's lettuce.
Agro-photovoltaics, or Agri-PV, knows a recent but very dynamic development in Europe. It follows the idea that food and energy security should not be viewed as competing goals, but that solar development and agriculture should be integrated for mutual benefits.
The First Swiss Symposium on agro-photovoltaics will be held on July 14, 2022 in Wädenswil.
