While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    Agrophotovoltaic (Solar) Farming In Germany

    Solar energy from the farm; Solar panels on top, wheat and potatoes down below: researchers aim to make farmers' fields twice as productive with a revolution in power generation. A pilot facility in southwest Germany is exploring the new concept.

    Gero Reuter, 17 November 2016 (Deutsche Welle)

    “Feeding the world's growing population requires land…[and] it makes sense to double up and use available land for both the production of food and of energy…In a pilot project near Lake Constance, on the German-Swiss border, researchers from several institutes are checking out the possibilities and advantages of this approach…On 2.5 hectares (around six acres) of agricultural land, an organic farming company is growing wheat, potatoes, celery and a mixture of clover and grass - part of it under photovoltaic panels mounted on stands at a height of five meters (16.5 feet). Another section of the field is farmed in the usual way, not shaded by solar panels…This comparison should show what kinds of vegetables or crops are particularly suited for agrophotovoltaic (APV) production…Similar sites already exist in France, Italy and Japan…” click here for more
