As societies seek solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change, large-scale solar power emerges as a pivotal player. Recognized by climate scientists as a potent tool for reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 2030, solar power is anticipated to constitute nearly 60% of new utility-scale electricity-generating capacity in the U.S. by 2024.

In this context, Matthew Sturchio, a PhD Student in Plant and Ecosystem Ecology at Colorado State University, introduces the concept of “ecovoltaics.” This innovative approach aims to transform solar development, combining agriculture and solar power to achieve a harmonious balance between energy production and ecological sustainability.
