Potentials for beneficial insect promotion in agri-photovoltaic systems (Solarnützlinge)


Investigating the potential impact of agri-photovoltaic (APV) installations on functional biodiversity and developing and testing ways to promote beneficial insects in these installations



  • Field study: Investigation of existing APV systems for the abundance and diversity of beneficial insects
  • Development of biodiversity-promoting integration elements and their testing in the field
  • Carrying out experiments on the direct effects of PV modules on selected beneficial and harmful insects

Climate effect under consideration
