BERRY PV & POME PV
elevated AgriPV plants for protected cultivation of fruits and vegetables with double glass modules in different degrees of transparency
AgriPV for fruit and horticulture
In this application, the distances are essentially determined by the type of fruit grown, whereby the division into two groups has proven itself in practice:Lower elevations for berry crops or horticulture and higher elevations for tree crops such as pome or stone fruit crops.For both types of installation, the row distances are 5-6 m, so that the high connected loads per hectare (ha) shown in the table below also result here.
The use of bifacial modules even results in additional yields of 10-15 %. A system above a pome fruit orchard (e.g. apple trees) yields approx. 985 kWh/KWp in the Lake Constance area and over 1200 kWh/KWp in South Tyrol.

Innovative solutions are needed in the agricultural sector
Climate change with rising temperatures and water scarcity presents farmers with the problem of efficiently protecting plants and soils from negative environmental influences. At the same time, land is an increasingly scarce resource - particularly agriculturally attractive areas with high solar irradiation are sometimes in demand both for food production and for open-space photovoltaic systems. Agri-photovoltaics resolves this competition for land and also promises benefits for both sides: When modules for electricity production are installed above crops and soils, they can protect against negative environmental impacts such as drought and hail. At the same time, they supply electricity from renewable energy, which in many cases can be used directly on a decentralized basis for the farm's own consumption, e.g. for the operation of cold storage facilities. Our AgriPV systems, designed according to DIN Spec 91434, can be installed on small and also on very large open areas without losing fertile arable land for food production. In the first step we develop an agricultural utilization concept. This is the basis for determining the planning and technical requirements for the AgriPV system. This is to increase resilience by protecting against hail, frost and drought through the partial roofing with PV modules can protect against this. Less evaporation and the possibility of collecting rainwater for irrigation through the modules are other synergistic effects.
