On February 16th 2023, Eko Agro Group (EAG) entered into a partnership agreement with RHEAURA OP, a major nationwide organization of Italian agricultural producers.
This partnership will create an operational structure based on the EAG model aimed at the development of Agri-Photovoltaic (APV) sites on suitable areas belonging to RHEAURA’s associates.
By leveraging APV innovation, the merging of farming development and green energy represents a crucial step in simultaneously achieving agricultural sustainability and driving the green energy transition. Aligned with the United Nations 2030 Agenda and sustainable development goals, such steps are key to climate, food and energy security.
By combining agriculture with clean energy, the first beneficiary of the creation of APV solutions are the farmers, through improved yield and leveraged Agri-Tech competencies.
Salvatore Toscano, CEO of Eko Agro Group, commented:
“APV solutions require an innate knowledge of agricultural operations. RHEAURA’s network and farming expertise is a precious opportunity that will allow us to combine this knowledge with EAG’s advanced technologies and the expertise of the energy operators to ensure every solution has sustainability in mind”.
