New agrisolar digital map presents over 200 projects across Europe

Agrisolar digital map launch press release

15 May 2024

  • SolarPower Europe presents the first-of-its-kind digital map showcasing agrisolar projects across Europe. 


  • The innovative platform presents over 200 agrisolar projects spanning 10 European countries.  


  • With a combined capacity exceeding 2.8 GW, these agrisolar projects represent a significant milestone in the integration of solar energy with agricultural practices. 


BRUSSELS, Belgium (Wednesday, 15th May 2024) SolarPower Europe has launched a new digital map highlighting more than 200 agrisolar projects across Europe that exceed a combined capacity of 2.8 GW, including both pilot and commercial projects. 


Agrisolar, referring to the integration of solar photovoltaic projects within an agricultural activity, includes the deployment of PV on the roof of agricultural buildings, PV integrated into irrigation systems, and agrivoltaics. 


The map highlights a diverse range of technologies, including ground-mounted PV, interrow PV, dynamic PV, overhead PV, farm rooftop PV, and solar PV greenhouses, tailored to accommodate various agricultural activities. 


Eva Vandest, Group Head of Public Affairs, Global Agrisolar expert at Amarenco and Chair of SolarPower Europe’s Land Use and Permitting Workstream, expressed enthusiasm about the initiative, stating: 


"With this digital map providing an overview of Agri-PV installations across Europe, we aim to illustrate the current development of this market and enable tracking of its progress. It's evident that various types of installations have been built in accordance with SolarPower Europe guidelines, fostering a wide array of solutions to address the diverse needs of the agricultural sector." 


Lina Dubina, Policy Advisor on Sustainability at SolarPower Europe said: 


This map unveils how agrisolar and farming can go hand in hand to support a multitude of crops such as vines, fruit plants, market gardening, wheat, barley, and more. Agrisolar can also integrate with livestock farming practices, including sheep grazing, cows, hens, and beekeeping. “ 


Dubina continued: “Many agrisolar projects featured on the map incorporate biodiversity initiatives aimed at preserving and enhancing ecosystems. These initiatives include tracking wildflowers as well as various animal species, further underscoring the environmental benefits of agrisolar integration.” 


The map provides a comprehensive overview of projects across Switzerland, France (including outer regions), Netherlands, Lithuania, Germany, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Austria, and the UK, serving as a valuable resource for stakeholders interested in the intersection of solar energy and agriculture. The project will be ongoing, with the aim of providing the most comprehensive overview of agrisolar projects in Europe to solar developers, farmers, researchers and policymakers.
