SCAPES Open House 2

November 29, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

We’ve got exhilarating news! You’re cordially invited to our Agrivoltaics Open House on Nov 29th, 2:00 – 3:00 pm on Zoom. After the fantastic success of our previous event on Aug 7th, 2023, where we brought together remarkable individuals from the solar and agricultural industries, we’re thrilled to continue the discussion.

In our last meeting, we had a blast diving into agrivoltaic systems and their impact on local communities and the planet. Thanks to your valuable input, we’ve gathered more answers to your questions and are better equipped to tackle challenges together.

This time, we’re putting the spotlight on crops! Our superstar researchers, Carl Bernacchi and DK Lee, will provide exciting updates on our Crop Physiology team’s groundbreaking work. If you’ve ever wondered which crops work best for agrivoltaics, this is your golden opportunity to chat with an expert.

But that’s not all – other fantastic members of the SCAPES grant team will also give brief updates on grant progress, making it a comprehensive and engaging session.

Let’s introduce our dynamic speakers: Dr. Bernacchi, an expert in atmospheric and climatic change impact on crop species, and Dr. Lee, a pioneer in improving perennial grass production systems for sustainable biomass and bioenergy feedstocks. They are dedicated to finding innovative solutions for increasing sustainability, ecosystem services, and water quality.

And remember, the SCAPES project is backed by USDA-NIFA, ensuring credibility.

Mark your calendars for Nov 29th and get ready to embark on a journey into cutting-edge agrivoltaic research with Dr. Bernacchi and Dr. Lee. Together, let’s create a more sustainable and promising tomorrow!
