Institute for Sustainable Energy Policies hosts a side event at the 8th International Renewable Energy Conference (KIREC Seoul 2019) on October 22nd 14:30~16:00. In the session, we will share the frontier of “Solar Energy and Agriculture”.


Both power generation and agriculture need solar energy and land. Rational use of these precious natural resources is a key to sustainable development. Competing resource use can be turned into complementary or, even better, mutually beneficial use with a rational planning. Study and actual application of “Agrivoltaics (or Solar Sharing),” for instance, is rapidly gaining popularity elsewhere in the world. We will introduce the existing practices of the mixed land use of photovoltaics and agriculture and discuss its potential applications.
