Implementation Stories

Agrivoltaic by Ether Energy
Implemented by Iberdrola France in Radhisons (France) in 2023

Within this framework, Iberdrola will be responsible for the development, construction, financing and operation of the agrivoltaic plant, while Sun'Agri will provide its agronomic expertise during the design phase and will then be in charge of managing the solar louvers. Its solution will be deployed in more than 20 farms in France in 2023.



The environmental benefits

  • 1% of current farmland in Belgium would be needed for agrivoltaics to meet 19% of Belgium electricity generation
  • Solar farms' levelized cost of electricity (LCOE) is below gas-fired power plants' LCOE
  • Solar energy is a sustainability leader, saving 96% of GHG emissions compared to coal and 93% compared to gas.
  • Recycling of solar panels is mandatory, and technical recycling yields reach up to 90% of panel weight.

The Financial benefits

  • Deployment of agrivoltaics can increase farm income by over 30%
  • For every TWh of power produced, solar currently creates 1,100 jobs in the EU
