INTELLIGENT PV SHADING SYSTEMS TO OPTIMISE CROPS AND ELECTRICITY SELF-CONSUMPTION IN RURAL AREAS
The PIVOINE demonstration project has the goal of optimising an intelligent PV shading system designed to shield fields depending on the needs of crops, while producing low-carbon electricity. The optimisation process aims at maximising the farming-to-electricity production ratio. The project will also involve compiling a database so deployment can be launched on a commercial scale. The Astredhor site (peony farm) in Hyères has been chosen as the site to test this project.
