Integration of Energy Crops in PV-Systems - Increase of Land Utilization Ratio of Free Field Photovoltaic Systems by Integrating Energy Crops

J. Götzel, A. Peterhansl & G. Becker
Renewable energies will be very important for the energy supply in the future. Next to wind power, water power and geothermal power, the potential of photovoltaic (pv) and biomass is very high. Especially in Germany they are counted to the most important renewable energies. The present work deals with the possibility to grow energy crops on free field photovoltaic systems. By fermenting the energy crop to biogas, it is possible to generate additional electrical energy....
