Agri PV: How to Utilize the Vast Potential for Solar Power in Agriculture

Tuesday, June 13, 2023, 04:30 pm - 06:00 pm

ICM München Room 14 C

Agri PV has become a buzzword in the solar industry because it can bring together the needs of power plant developers and the food industry. Indeed, co-locating solar energy generation with agricultural operations can optimize space utilization and create multiple revenue streams, which would be a win-win situation. But how complimentary is this approach in reality? And how quickly is Agri PV evolving as the global solar industry is set to require additional space for several hundreds of gigawatts of utility-scale solar power every year?This session will discuss: Deployment of Agri-PV- Product innovations Policies and cost considerations for agricultural projects Panel: What's needed to turn food famers into solar farmers?

Joint Session
Innovation, New Market Designs and Flexibility Needs to Integrate Large-Scale Renewables

Tuesday, June 13, 2023, 02:30 pm - 04:00 pm

ICM München Room 13 A

Storage technologies are emerging as a key solution that will provide flexibility. Digital technologies are emerging with new applications, supporting a faster response and increased flexibility to integrate higher shares of variable renewables. Further great potential for increased flexibility lies in the demand response, but the question remains as to how to unlock and properly value it. New market designs and regulations are needed to incentivize flexibility from all assets. This session will provide examples of emerging innovative solutions to enable a large share of renewables to be integrated into power systems, and include a debate around the market design and regulatory innovations needed to scale up such solutions.
