Workshop series by greentech and the machinery ring association for sustainable agriculture

Oct 9, 2023

Hamburg, 21.09.23 – In times of advancing climate change and the increased need to switch to renewable energy, farmers play a crucial role in shaping a sustainable future. greentech and MR Agrarnetz GmbH have teamed up to offer a workshop series for farmers in Schleswig-Holstein that provides comprehensive information on the topic of free-field PV as a lease model or PV as own power.

The workshop series offers farmers the opportunity to learn about the potential of renewable energy use on their land and on their farms, and equips them with the information they need to make informed decisions regarding the integration of photovoltaic systems on their farms. The focus is primarily on evaluating the potential of PV systems, with two options addressed: PV as captive power, particularly on rooftops, or leasing land for large-scale ground-mounted PV systems, possibly in combination with captive power generation. Between October 11, 2023 and February 15, 2024, a total of 5 dates will address PV market environment, plant technology, economic viability, legal principles and approval procedures, as well as the drafting of leases to protect owners’ interests.

The workshop series is conducted by knowledgeable industry experts and is open to all interested farmers. Registration is by booking the complete package of all 5 dates for 299€ per person. For participants at the age between 20 and 30 years 50% of the costs are taken over.
