Since then, he worked in more than 30 agrivoltaics projects with a focus on economic feasibility, technology transfer and institutional designs. With over 50 employees of different disciplines, the Group Agrivoltaics at Fraunhofer ISE encompasses all relevant facets of agrivoltaic technology like PV technology, agricultural and environmental sciences, hydrology, geology, as well as economic and political sciences.
