Join staff from the AgriSolar Clearinghouse and leading agrivoltaic researcher Greg Barron-Gafford on a tour of the agrisolar research underway at Biosphere 2. Biosphere 2 is the world's largest controlled environment dedicated to understanding the impacts of climate change. Operated by the University of Arizona, the facility includes 3.14 acres, with 7.2 million cubic feet sealed underneath glass domes. Greg Barron-Gafford and his team are investigating the potential for reintroducing vegetation into the typical PV power plant installation in drylands. Dr. Barron Gafford’s research shows that this novel approach may lead to increased renewable energy production, increased food production, and reduced water use!
