Getting to know agrovoltaics better

SolarPower Europe would like to develop agriculture sheltered by solar panels (agrovoltaics). This organisation

will set up a working group to develop this form of energy production and agricultural support. This combination increases the yield of agricultural crops, reduces water consumption and produces renewable electricity.

Is this just the concern of plant developers or is it really useful for farmers? We're still in the experimental stage. In agriculture, however, it takes several years to reach a conclusion.
