2023 Conference Theme: Harvesting Synergy: Bridging Agriculture and Solar Innovation for Sustainable Futures

To keep Canada’s farmers farming, agrivoltaics (the symbiotic combinations of agricultural and solar photovoltaics) provides an opportunity to add a reliable revenue stream while even increasing crop yields. Agrivoltaics has enormous promise in Canada. Agrivoltaics is in its infancy in Canada, but as is the case globally, there is a projected rapid expansion over the coming 5 years and we intend to support that growth as a common ground for best practices, crop and generation measurements, new technologies, approaches and environmental and electrical policy development.

Held at Ivey’s Spencer Leadership Centre, the sold-out event involved 7 panel sessions with over 20 speakers and was attended by farmers, researchers, and renewable energy industry experts.

This event was recorded and we are hoping to publish the edited videos in 2024, stay tuned for more information!
