local case study

Germany

Gelsdorf

This project was created in early 2021 about 60 km south of Cologne on the Nachtwey organic fruit farm. Together with Fraunhofer ISE, BayWa r.e. was responsible for developing the Agri-PV system design as well as for implementation and construction management. 

Different module designs are tested here side by side for their suitability for eight different apple varieties. The solar power produced is, among other things, used for the electric tractor on site and operates the electric pump of the irrigation system, which replaces a diesel generator.
