Ceremonial opening of EWS Sonnenfeld Bruck/Leitha - status: in operation
With the opening and commissioning of the EWS Sonnenfeld Bruck/Leitha, agri-photovoltaics is ready for practical application. Further EWS Sonnenfeld® projects are already being developed in various federal states.
With the help of the smart control software, the findings from the pilot plant are incorporated into each new project.
"We expect the pilot plant to provide us with information on how mechanised agricultural management works best in practice, which crops are best suited and what effects the agri-photovoltaic plant has on biodiversity. The movable sun catchers in combination with smart control software enable us to react to certain aspects such as type of crop, drought, precipitation and partial shading and to get the most out of the combination of solar power generation and plant growth," explains Joachim Payr of EWS as product developer of the sun field.
