Description

As we look for ways to address the ever-increasing demand for both energy and food, one innovative solution has emerged: agrivoltaics. This practice involves co-locating solar energy installations with agricultural activities, either beneath or between rows of photovoltaic panels. By doing so, we can overcome the conflicts over land use that have long plagued the energy and food/agricultural sectors.

However, while agrivoltaics presents a promising solution to this issue, it also introduces a new set of uncertainties. There are concerns around resource coordination, such as energy, water, and land use, as well as support extension to crop in terms of climate risks. To address these uncertainties, further improvements in agrivoltaic system design are imperative.

That's where the concept of a "shared circular business model based blockchain-enabled dynamic agrivoltaic farm" comes in. This innovative approach combines the principles of circular economy and blockchain technology to create a more sustainable and efficient agrivoltaic system. 

Through this model, farmers and solar photovoltaic operators can work together to optimize resource use and reduce wastage of water. The blockchain technology enables transparent and secure tracking of resources and ensures fair compensation for all parties involved and enables direct link to the market for trading energy and the crop harvest. 

As we continue to explore the potential of agrivoltaics, it's clear that innovative approaches like the shared circular business model are crucial to realizing its full benefits. By working together and leveraging the latest technologies, we can create a more sustainable and prosperous future for both the energy and food/agricultural sectors.
