Challenge / Goal

Sapiens Energía and Tranesol are developing two agro-photovoltaic projects in the Valencia region. They will supply the energy needs of around 500 users per project, both private homes, companies and public facilities. This type of project, which combines agricultural crops with high-altitude solar panels that are installed on top of the plantations, has already been successfully tested in other countries. The dual use of the land improves its efficiency and profitability, as the owners will receive returns from both the harvests and the energy generation. In the specific case of Spain, it can contribute to alleviating two problems that have worsened in recent years: price pressure for agricultural producers and the lack of job opportunities, which have triggered rural depopulation, while at the same time advancing in the transition towards a system based on renewable energy production.

Solution

The steps taken to form and manage the energy communities include:

  1. Initial project design with strategic partners
  2. Administrative procedures
  3. Co-creation procedures for the configuration of the energy community: information, training, stakeholder participation to define structure, organisation, rules of operation and governance
  4. Construction and installation of the solar energy production technologies
  5. Solar energy production and maintenance
