AgriVoltaics2023 - the fourth edition of our conference and only the second one to be held on site! - will take place in April 12-14, 2023, as a hybrid event in Daegu, Korea and online.
The AgriVoltaics2023 conference will be organized in collaboration with our local host Yeungnam University and our 2023 conference chair Prof. Jae Hak Jung, supported by our scientific committee chair Prof. Soo-Young Oh.
We are looking forward to bringing our conference to Asia for the first time!
South Korea is a multifaceted country with lively high-tech cities, charming rural areas with traditional Buddhist temples, and a world-renowned pop culture. A technological forerunner, the country offers exceptional high-speed internet, an outstanding high-speed railway network and - most importantly - a growing agrivoltaics market in a country aiming for a 35% share of renewable electricity generation by 2040.
• Researchers from PV and agriculture (including biology and hydrology) and those working "in between"; • Companies such as PV module, mounting systems and tracker manufacturers, EPC companies, renewable energy producers, as well as those providing farm machinery equipment and seed producers; • Organic farming associations, agricultural federations and similar stakeholder groups; • Experts from politics and finance open for innovative and future-oriented ideas.
