A growing body of scientific research and real-world applications at the water-food-energy nexus is revealing that solar panels and photovoltaic (PV) energy systems on farm and ranch lands can not only produce emissions- and pollution-free energy but create a symbiosis that conserves water and results in higher agricultural productivity and biodiversity.

Reporting on ongoing, empirical research on-campus at Oregon State University (OSU) in the US, a research team determined that installing solar power systems on just 1% of agricultural lands worldwide would be sufficient to meet global electricity demand. The results also revealed significant increases in agricultural productivity and biodiversity, more particularly for pollinators.
