Agrivoltaics Provide Mutual Benefits Across The Food-Energy-Water Nexus In Drylands

This paper provides insight on the trade-offs of co-locating agriculture and solar photovoltaic infrastructure by analyzing microclimatic conditions, PV panel temperature, soil moisture and irrigation water use, plant ecophysiological function and plant biomass production within this agrivoltaics ecosystem and in traditional PV installations and agricultural settings.
