ASGA Call 68 Replay – Making Agrivoltaics a Financial Success: Tools & Research Update from NREL

For our July webinar, we were excited to be joined by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL)’s James McCall, who discussed their agrivoltaics research programs. I encourage you to watch not only the presentation, but the lively and in-depth discussion that followed.

NREL has been studying the costs associated with agrivoltaics and solar grazing, as well as working to map agrivoltaics projects in the U.S. James went through several useful tools that NREL has developed:

Agrivoltaics Map –

Agrivoltaics Financial Calculator:

Data Portal –

James and ASGA’s Alyssa Andrew also discussed the upcoming InSPIRE research projects that ASGA is participating in with NREL. James provided a brief overview of the federally funded research projects around agrivoltaics as well.

You can learn more about the results of NREL’s agrivoltaics research by checking out their recent publication, “The 5 Cs of Agrivoltaic Success Factors in the United States: Lessons From the InSPIRE Research Study.”
