Welcome to Perpignan,


welcome to AgriVoltaics2020,
the first world congress on agrivoltaics systems



Energy or food from agricultural land? Why should we have to choose? Couldn’t we combine both types of production on the same land to capture the most of the solar energy and advance the energy transition to sustainable energy production, while feeding the ever increasing world population? Is it feasible and if so, how? Those are the key challenges that agrivoltaic systems address, and AgriVoltaics2020 will be the first ever opportunity to share good science on these topical issues.

The sun has always been a major attractor for people visiting the South of France and especially Catalunya that enjoys one of the highest irradiations in Europe: more than 300 sunny days each year. But there is more to Perpignan and the area than sumptuous beaches, romantic old churches and castles or impressive peaks like the Canigou range. There is a vibrant activity. Regarding solar energy, the area has a long record of innovations, starting in 1970 with the world-famous solar furnace at Odeillo. It is still today the largest in the world. Numerous photovoltaic systems have been set up in the area, including agrivoltaic systems in greenhouses and open fields. The largest dynamic agrivoltaic plant in the world is right there, with vineyards underneath, and you will have the opportunity to visit it during the conference.

It is my pleasure to very cordially welcome the participants of AgriVoltaics2020, housed at the historical Palais des Rois de Majorque in Perpignan. Don’t hesitate to extend your stay and enjoy the area, including the famous photojournalism festival «VISA pour l’IMAGE» (opening 29 August 2020). August and early September is probably the best time of the year to discover the area, so enjoy and share!

Benvinguts a Catalunya.

Christian Dupraz,
Chair of the Scientific Committee of AgriVoltaics2020
