Experimentation with vertical panels in agrivoltaism

The French company Total Quadra and the German company Next2Sun have joined forces to develop vertical photovoltaic solutions in French agrivoltaic projects (excluding Alsace).

The vertical installation of the panels makes it possible to exploit

the solar radiation incident on their front and rear faces and to offer maximum performance during the hours of high consumption, at dawn and dusk. Protecting from wind and sun, occupying little space, and easily integrated into fences between fields or other structures, the system is ideal for an agrivoltaic application.

"Total Quadran is convinced that this innovative technology will make an essential contribution to agricultural land management by reducing competition between uses. »
