Why not combine agriculture and solar energy on the same field?

Using vertical solar-cell installations, researchers from Aarhus University will harvest both energy and crops from the same agricultural area. The plan is to produce energy when it is most needed, while at the same time leaving space for the farmer to work in the field.

"There’s a fantastic wealth of ideas at engineering departments, and I will do all I can to ensure that some of these ideas become reality," says Professor Anders Brandt, new head of the Department of Mechanical and Production Engineering, Aarhus University. Photo: SDU.
