Insolight successfully obtained the EIC Accelerator grant which will support the production and commercial scale-up of our agrivoltaic solution.Many thanks to the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SERI) for their support following the Swiss ban from the Horizon Europe Programs. Join us to feed citizens and the grid!
Insolight was one of the 39 companies invited to compete at the Future22 final event in late March 2022.
During the project the micro-climate and biodiversity under Insolight translucent modules to compare to conventional (opaque modules)will be monitored. The demonstrator will quantify the effect of our translucent technology on vegetalised rooftops.
The Federation of Migros Cooperatives decided to suport the insolagrin project, sending an important signal about the importance of bringing a new solution for large-scale photovoltaic deployments without additional impact on the land and reducing the carbon footprint of crops. Find out more in Migros Magazine in French & German. insolagrin, a pilot project created[…]
Our agrivoltaic solution insolagrin which combines solar energy and soft fruit production on the same land was named Technovation for Next Level Fruit! More about the award here.
Is it possible to feed citizens and the grid at the same time? The construction of insolagrin Conthey in Valais (Switzerland), a highly innovative solar power plant, provides some elements of answer. This is the first time – worldwide – that this new agrivoltaic technology has been deployed on a large-scale pilot. The first raspberries[…]
Insolight and its partners Romande Energie and Agroscope will be building a highly innovative solar installation on Agroscope’s Conthey site in the canton of Valais with the aim of testing a new agrivoltaic solution (insolagrin). This pilot project was supported by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (OFEN). The insolagrin solution, which proposes thereplacement of[…]
