Inaugural North American Agrivoltaics Conference Seeks to Ignite Dual-Use Solar Renaissance

By: PRLog

2023 Solar Farm Summit will rally hundreds of agrivoltaics revolutionaries to North America's first comprehensive and catalytic solar development, land use and "dual use" energy + agriculture conference.

CHICAGO - Dec. 7, 2022 - PRLog -- North America's first comprehensive and catalytic agrivoltaics conference will convene hundreds of attendees in the continent's heartland for 2+ difference-making days of instructive, illuminating and inspiring solar power + agriculture production programming when the 2023 Solar Farm Summit descends upon the renowned Hilton Rosemont/Chicago O‛Hare hotel March 14 and 15.

As scientists and practitioners attest in growing concert, combining solar power and agricultural production into single, stacked solar farms maximizes the utility of both land uses by providing shade that produces electricity and simultaneously shields plants under protective microclimates, which can both increase cultivated yields and reduce water consumption while cooling solar panels and raising photovoltaic performance. To encourage robust growth of this multi-benefit practice, speed adoption, and catalyze ultimate construction of these ultra-sustainable solar farms into ubiquity across North America, the 2023 Solar Farm Summit is convening a power-packed in-person forum for dynamic information exchange, interactive exhibition, idea cross-pollination and interpersonal connection.

Attendees can expect an immersive solar energy, land use and dual-use development conference experience of the very highest educational caliber. A stellar program will feature 60+ experts and practitioners working through a syllabus that builds from entry-level basics of a land-based solar project; into exploration of the project lifecycle from siting through construction, operation and decommissioning; up to the state of the art of agrivoltaics science, case studies, site selection, land use, land recycling, government programs, grants and incentives; as well as expert Q&A and technical assistance.

While steeping in this powerful, knowledge-rich nexus of energy and agricultural growth potential, a supercharged social experience at the 2023 Solar Farm Summit will also feature 12 scheduled networking opportunities, starting with a pre-conference happy hour March 13.

Early bird tickets are now available, including discounted tickets for public sector professionals and students.

Farmers, ranchers and landowners can also attend the conference free of charge by scoring their potential development sites in the Site Combine, while open seats remain. And a limited number of media passes are also available.

Anyone with an interest in the policy and practice of ground-mounted solar energy development and everyone with a specific interest in agrivoltaics is highly encouraged to attend. There will be no better opportunity in North America next year to dig into solar land use issues, steep oneself in working agrivoltaics knowledge, connect with world class solar pros, and plug into an in-person agrivoltaics conference and exposition than the 2023 Solar Farm Summit.
