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.
