OET is a Gold Sponsor of the
13th International Conference & Exhibition on Green Flexible Printed Electronics Industry (ICEFPE23) and AGRIVOLTAICS 2023!
This International Conference & Exhibition will bring together Key Industrial Players, Top-class Scientists, Engineers, End-Users, Entrepreneurs, Farmers, Investors, Policy Makers, Politicians and Representatives from the National, European and International Authorities to discuss, networking, make business and establish the Strategy and Policy for boosting the rapidly evolving Green FPEs hundred-Billion euros Industry in Green Energy, Renewable Energy Resources, Fuel Cells, Green Hydrogen, Energy Autonomous Systems, Lighting, Electronics and Communications, Automotive, Electrical Vehicle, Buildings, Smart Cities, Agriculture, Intelligent Packaging and Security, Health Care, Wearables, IoT, etc. contributing to a Green, Digital, Decarbonized Industry and Circular Economy, Society and Planet.
The rapid growth of the world population leads to the need to increase food production and energy generation.
However, a higher demand for food production would most certainly mean an increase in fossil fuel use and, as a result, greater greenhouse gas emissions.
REPowerEU seeks to achieve 45% renewable energy in the EU at 2030 mix and expedite PV energy adoption through an EU solar energy strategy.
Agrivoltaics is an emerging technology field that combines the most innovative Renewable Energy solution based on Flexible Semitransparent Organic Photovoltaics (OPV) and the other FPE devices with Agriculture in order to lead a sustainable farming process and crop growth by optimizing the use of arable land.
AgriPV, especially with OPVs can contribute not only to the 1 TWp solar target by 2030 and 5 TWp solar target by 2050, but also to increase dramatically the food production and water management, and in parallel to contribute to zero gas emissions and the climate changes targets.
In the coming years we expect Greenhouse and open cultivations to be transformed into sustainable food production units and power plants for self-consumption, electricity trade and grid connection, creating wealth, employment, and prosperity in local communities and the countries.
