Agrivoltaics


"A key to combating climate change is action." To this end, NETA offers a series of short documentaries called 50 States of Sustainability, "focused on dedicated people of all ages working hard at corporations, non-profits, startups, and in government to drive the United States towards a more sustainable future."


One way of saving the family farm might be Agrivoltaics - producing food in the shade of solar panels and generating energy. In the YouTube video above the founder of The Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) reflects on the importance of energy saving energy, and learns from an Ohio 11-year-old about the importance of bees.


From Wikipedia: "RMI is an organization in the United States dedicated to research, publication, consulting, and lecturing in the general field of sustainability, with a special focus on profitable innovations for energy and resource efficiency. RMI was established in 1982 and has grown into a broad-based institution with 220+ staff and an annual budget of some $52 million. RMI's work is independent and non-adversarial, with a strong emphasis on market-based solutions." RMI works to "identify the interventions and work to scale transformative change in the global energy system to cut greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by at least 50% by 2030."
