Use of renewable energy resources in greenhouses, in order to reduce or eliminate fossil fuels and to reduce or eliminate greenhouse gas emissions

February 2023 - February 2026


The project aims to address climate change and specifically reduce greenhouse gas emissions through the use of suitable agro-photovoltaics in vegetable production greenhouses. Addressing climate change requires replacing fossil fuels with appropriately adapted photovoltaics (agro-photovoltaics), whose use is not associated with the emission of greenhouse gases. MAICh coordinates this project, while other partners in the partnership include a business providing technical support, the Agricultural Cooperative of Elafonisi, and a producer to be used for the pilot action.
