University of Arizona Vertically Integrated Projects (VIP) Undergraduate Research Program Agrivoltaics team is looking to enroll students for course credit in the Spring 2024 semester. Paid opportunities may be available on a case-by-case basis.
Within this VIP, we will be tackling real and important challenges to build towards more sustainable food, energy, and water futures. Each of these food, energy, and water systems are extremely sensitive to a warming climate, and projections of more erratic precipitation will only add to these pressures. We are building the interdisciplinary field of agrivoltaics—the concept of colocating agriculture and photovoltaics (renewable energy from solar panels) as one potential solution.
