Feedgy Patents and Markets the World’s First Agrivoltaic Panel

Feedgy, a French specialist in the optimization of photovoltaic plants, announces that it has launched the first agrivoltaic panel in the world, the HS-B96 AgriPV module.

Technological Developments and Patents

After a decade dedicated to research and development, Feedgy has obtained 9 patents on the manufacturing process of the HS-B96 AgriPV, a panel that stands out for its ability to generate both energy and increase production in agriculture. This achievement was made possible thanks to the collaboration with Huasun, the world leader in Heterojunction technology.

Benefits of agrivoltaics

Agrivoltaics represents a fusion between agriculture and photovoltaic production, which allows for more efficient use of land. This technology not only improves agricultural yields by protecting against extreme events and optimizing photosynthesis but also increases the production of solar energy, which significantly contributes to a more sustainable system of agriculture.

Thanks to Feedgy’s simulation tools, the panels can be adapted to the dimensions of the greenhouse glazing.

Benefits and Advantages of HS-B96 AgriPV Panel

Feedgy’s HS-B96 AgriPV panel, certified by TÜV Rheinland, is a pioneering solution that combines photonic technology to efficiently distribute sunlight between solar cells and plants.

This method not only favors agricultural production but also increases energy efficiency, which represents an important development for the industry.

Thanks to Feedgy’s simulation tools, the panels can be adapted to the dimensions of the greenhouse glazing.

  • Heterojunction Technology: The next generation of market-dominant high-efficiency solar cell technology.
  • Pmax temperature coefficient -0.26%/°C: More stable power generation and better in hot climates.
  • SMBB design with Medium Cut Technology: Shorter current transmission distance, lower resistive loss, and higher cell efficiency.
  • Up to 90% Bifaciality: Natural symmetrical bifacial structure that provides increased energy performance from the back.
  • Sealed with GDP-based sealant: Higher water resistance, and higher air impermeability to extend module life.
  • High reliability: Industry-leading product and performance guarantee, ensuring consistent outstanding performance of the modules.

The main technical characteristics of the new Feedgy modules are:

  • Cell Type: Heterounion (HJT).
  • Number of Cells: 96 cells per module.
  • Available Power: Range from 300 Wp to 320 Wp.
  • Transparency: 39%.
  • Applications: Horticulture, arboriculture, and floriculture.
  • Certifications: TÜV Rheinland.
  • Module Efficiency: Oscillates between 13.9% and 14.8%.
  • Transmittance of Photosynthetically Active Radiation (PAR): 33%.
  • PAR Transmission Competition: You need to increase the transparency by at least 49% to achieve the same PAR transmission, resulting in a reduction in PV performance per unit area.
  • Temperature Coefficient: -0.26% per degree Celsius, which means greater performance stability in hot climates.
  • Bifaciality: 90%.
  • Development and Patents: Developed in-house for 10 years and implemented by Feedgy.
  • Market Launch: Debut at the Energaïa fair in Montpellier in December 2023, with exclusive sales in France.

Market Impact and Continuity

With a global market worth 3.6 billion dollars in 2021 and a growth projection of up to 9.3 billion in 2031, agrivoltaics has emerged as one of the most promising areas of transition towards sustainability.

Feedgy’s HS-B96 AgriPV panel is at the forefront of this movement, offering an effective solution to reduce the carbon footprint of agricultural operations.

Challenges and Solutions in Agrovoltaics

Despite its many advantages, agrivoltaics face challenges in terms of acceptance. Feedgy and its partners are working to overcome these obstacles, promoting the adoption of best practices and the modernization of photovoltaic plants, to demonstrate the true value and benefits of this technology.
