Agri-voltaic-triple land use: A review

Dongardive SN, Mohod AG, Khandetod YP, Dhande KG and Thokal RT
Agriculture is backbone of Indian Economy. Sixty percent of the population is directly or indirectly dependent on Agriculture. Urban centres in India are facing an ironical situation with regard to water today. On one hand there is acute water scarcity and on the other, the streets are often flooded during the monsoons, requiring managerial efficiency of the Urban Local Bodies to use the surplus water of the rainy season to overcome the deficiency in other seasons. Harvesting and collection of Rainwater is a proper method that can be used to address the problem of water crises in various parts of the world. The future requirement of increasing energy and food production, Agri- voltaic systems (AVS) have been identified as a mixed system combining photovoltaic with agriculture at the same time on the same land. An innovative approach of agricultural mechanism- food production along with energy generation which benefits farmers economically and provides a new scope of development and revival in Indian Agriculture. Water Energy and Food (WEF) Nexus solutions such as agrovoltaics are increasingly being deployed to improve access to water for agricultural uses, improve yields and incomes, reduce drudgery especially for women, enhancing resilience and microclimate, and improve land use efficiency and food security. This innovative approach has opened new prospects to improve the quality of life for people as well as their environment as a whole.
