Agricultural entrepreneurs contribute significantly to the production of renewable energy in our country. With solar panels, windmills, manure and geothermal heat, the agricultural sector is already an important producer of Dutch renewable energy.
In order to achieve the Paris climate goals, a further contribution from the agricultural sector is expected. Thus, from the solar energy sector, there is much interest in the construction of solar parks on farmland. However, the climate agreement also states that the use of renewable energy should not be at the expense of food production.
In the search for innovative solutions for combining food production with the generation of solar currents, WeLLDesign has organized a competition on behalf of RVO.nl, a department of the Ministry of Economic Affairs of the Netherlands.
