Vattenfall has made the final investment choice for the 76MW agri PV project Tützpatz in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany.

The project will certainly be constructed without government funding, the Swedish developer stated.

It is Vattenfall's initial agri PV commercial scale project with partners.

The aim of the Agri PV project in Tützpatz is to incorporate module types on different shelf systems with suitable forms of agricultural usage on an area of 95 hectares and also thus to gather further practical experience for future commercial projects of this type.

According to current preparation, construction for Tützpatz must begin in early summer 2023.

Vattenfall head of solar Claus Wattendrup said: "The federal government has the goal of expanding electrical power generation from photovoltaics to 215GW in 2030, fifty percent of which in open spaces.

" In addition to classic open-space PV, agrivoltaics can make a payment to accomplishing these goals.

" With the Tützpatz project, we are currently more creating this young technology on a commercial scale.

" Since agrivoltaics assist the climate, they can enhance biodiversity and also function as an additional source of income for agriculture."
