The Agrovoltaico® is a single or double axis tracking solar system, that maximise the production of energy from the sun while keeping the land available for agricultural activities.
The Agrovoltaico® is a particular type of agrophotovoltaic (APV) ttechnology developped by REM Tec. It allows even an increase of agricultural yield, thanks to the shadows generated by the PV modules. Agriculture and energy production are reached following agricultural product quality criteria. The studies made in cooperation with the University of Piacenza, the works done by Fraunhofer Institute and the experience got on the field
since 2011, allowed to reach an optimal knowledge of the PV shadowing effect on the agricultural yield. While on some crops the Agrovoltaico® system does not involves any significant yield difference, on some others it improves the production. The studies showed a yield increase of 4.3% for maize.
REM Tec patented worldwide the solar tracking technology. The plants built with the REM Tec patent are about 5m high and allow a very low impact of the shadows on the agricultural crops.
The height also allows all the agricultural vehicles to easily operate on the field.
Together with the University of Piacenza, REM Tec developed a family of solar trackers, that allow to reach optimal agricultural yield and efficient energy production.
