Abstract [en]

The political goal to combat climate change by a high share of renewable energy may trigger conflicts between biomass and power production, as Photovoltaic (PV) systems can be installed on arable land used for food production. The innovative Agrophotovoltaics (APV) system technology combines agricultural biomass and solar power production on the same site and aims at reducing the conflict between food and power production. A comprehensive analysis of the driving and restraining forces 15 for the implementation of APV-technology and expected or potential impacts on the environment is required. The presented study offers a so-called Systems Dynamics (SD) approach based on the results of citizen workshops, literature research, and expert discussions on the technology. This analysis produces Causal Loop Diagrams (CLDs), which describe optimization problems between power production and agriculture. Finally, these findings are criteria that may influence the local acceptance 20 in society, farmers’ motivation for APV and economic factors for the market launch of APV. Thus, this SD approach identifies bottlenecks and conflicting objectives in the technology implementation that need to be further addressed.
