  • The map shows the economic potential for integrated photovoltaics on agricultural parcels by using vertical bifacial PV systems in the Greater Region. Only the prioritized areas with an area size (≥ 10 ha) and crops without maize are shown. With the current technology used, areas of 10 ha or more can be used for AgriPV in an economically viable way. Areas cultivated with maize are unsuitable due to the growth height of the maize plants. Depending on the current legal framework, the areas are shown in colour. When a coloured area is selected, further information on the potential output and electricity generation as well as on the reference to the legal framework conditions is displayed. This is a theoretical potential based on the calculations and the assumptions on which the calculations are based. Therefore, when using the data, it should be noted that the data are based on a statistical approach and represent an approximation or an estimate regarding the potential.

  • The Luxembourg Ministry of Energy and Spatial Planning has organised a call for tenders in October 2022 to promote Agri-PV pilot installations on agricultural land. The PV projects are intended to ensure continued agricultural production on the land while promoting biodiversity (flora). The projects will be supported through a market premium over a period of 15 years. It should be noted that the areas prioritised on the greater-regional maps and the potentials identified are based on project-specific assumptions within the framework of the "PV follows function" project and do not allow a statement to be made on either the approvability or the technical-economic feasibility of a project within the framework of the Luxembourg Ministry's call for tenders.
