Work has begun on the construction of the first photovoltaic system in Japan by the licensee company NOTUS SOLAR.
The plant is located in the Ibaraki Prefecture and has a power of 85.76 kW.
The 310 kWp plant in Solignano (PR) was built with the formula of the sale of energy. The energy produced by the plant will be 80% self-consumed by the OVAS company, which deals with molds and accessories for the glass industry.
REM Tec will be premium sponsor for the first european confernece on Agrivoltaics which will take place in Perpignan (France) on 14/15/16 October 2020.
For more information, visit the dedicated website www.agrivoltaics-conference.org/.
The first Agrovoltaico® plant in France is operative. The plant consists in 12 trackers for a total power of 117 kW, it was installed in August 2019 using the last release of trackers and bifacial modules.

With the Hearing held in The Hague on 17/10/2018 REM Tec obtained the revocation of the patent EP 2 811 819 filed in 2013 by the Fraunhofer Institute.
Fraunhofer's patent referred to agro-photovoltaic plants for the simultaneous use of agricultural crops and production of energy from solar sources, claiming characteristics already present in REM Tec's AGROVOLTAICO® plants, installed in Italy in 2011 for a total of 6.7 MW.
In addition, the use of agricultural land for the production of energy from solar sources in compliance with agricultural practices is present in the REM Tec proprietary patents that protect the AGROVOLTAICO® system and its applications.
REM TEc will participate as an exhibitor at the Montichiari Agricultural Fair taking place on 1-2-3 February 2019 (h. 9.00 - 19.00).
You can find us in Pavilion 4 / Benaco. We are waiting for you!

In a global context where food needs are getting higher, the loss of agricultural space for energy purposes needs to be limited. At the same time, electricity consumption is growing in almost all sectors, including agriculture. Therefore, the need to find alternative solutions emerges. The Agrovoltaic® technology developed by Rem Tec fits into the international energy scene, constituting the meeting point between the two main world needs: food and energy.
The seminar aims to present the Agrovoltaic® technology and more generally the possibilities of using renewable energy in agriculture.
Representatives of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart, Climate-KIC, Aster, ENEA and Coldiretti will speak for a 360-degree overview of the topic

After four books of great success with the public and press on the green, Mondadori Università in co-edition with the Istud Foundation has produced the fifth volume in conjunction with Expo 2017 - Future Energy - held in Astana in Kazakhstan.
The book "Future Energy, Future Green. For earth, water, air and fire" is a set of essays, a true Anthology of Green with an all-encompassing cut. These are some of the topics covered: from how to invest in the future of the world (water, food, infrastructure, green energy) to the more general issues of green and energy, to the more recent ones of the Sharing & Food Economy, green building, and therefore, circular economy, pop economy, circonomy, crowfunding and other topics.
Rem Tec S.r.l. enthusiastically welcomed the invitation of the editors Maurizio Guandalini and Victor Uckmar (recently deceased) to write an essay entitled "When solar energy marries agriculture: solar panels for the cultivation of Japanese green tea ".
Our Agrovoltaico® brand, in fact, is in accordance with the green policy: technological innovation while leaving the natural state of the land unchanged. Agrovoltaic technology makes it possible to transform maximum solar energy into daily electricity, even allowing an increase in agricultural yield thanks to the possibility of managing the shadow generated by photovoltaic modules.
You can find it in all Italian bookstores starting from 18 January 2018!

New contacts in China! Rem Tec has embarked on a new collaboration path with two Chinese companies active in the solar sharing sector: Beijing Rongkun Agriculture technology Co. Ltd. (Beijing Rock) and Ningxia Keda Institute of Agriculture PV Co. Ltd. (Ningxia Keda), with the objective of increasing the Agrovoltaic market in the Chinese territory. The agreement follows the collaboration started in 2015 with Nanjing Share Power, an important EPC, with the aim of expanding the application of Agrovoltaic technology in the North-East and North-West of China. These territories are characterized by some of the highest growth rates in the Chinese economy, especially the provinces of Ningxia, Gansu, Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang which are part of the important "One belt one road" strategic plan launched by the CCP for the next decade. . The territories of Northern China are between latitudes of 35 ° and 45 ° N and are characterized by dry continental climates, including semi-desert and steppe areas, offering a good level of solar radiation, which makes the location particularly convenient for use of biaxial tracking systems. At the same time, the soil is very rich in aquifers, especially in the fertile regions crossed by the Yellow River, thus presenting great potential for agriculture. the crops that are most favorable are vines, fruit trees, berries and vegetables: according to the studies conducted by Rem tec on Italian plants and laboratory studies of the Catholic University of Piacenza and the Agricultural University of Ningxia, these crops they are also the most convenient to be cultivated with photovoltaic systems, since the agricultural yield is not negatively affected by shading, but in some cases it can benefit from the dynamic shadow generated by the Agrovoltaic system. Ningxia Keda is currently developing large solar sharing plants in the provinces of Ningxia and Gansu in semi-desert territories convertible to agriculture, with capacities of several hundred MWp each. Beijing Rock is busy building even larger plants in Liaoning and Inner Mongolia provinces on sites converted to agriculture by local governments. Furthermore, the collaboration between Rem Tec and the new Chinese partners aims to create a version of an Agrovoltaic greenhouse, integrating the production of photovoltaic energy with water pumping, climate management in the greenhouse and hydroponic crops. Rem Tec's growth strategy in the East includes the identification of 4 partners to cover the vast Chinese territory (including the very promising South-Western Provinces of Sichuan and Yunnan), 1 licensee for Taiwan, the Republic of Korea, Japan and the Philippines , in addition to the availability of qualified local suppliers.
