Mission R.E.M.

The R.E.M mission is to produce zero-emission electric energy from renewable sources through a fully integrated supply chain system with farming, by “promoting” a sustainable model of development able to provide local communities with clean energy and organic produce.

The “Food and Energy” project. An Italian project.

Thanks to the technical skills of a group of engineers, architects, agronomists, theoretical physicists and experts on agricultural mechanization. The “agrovoltaic” technology is a highly innovative solution which allows to go beyond the limits of traditional ground-mounted photovoltaic systems in terms of compatibility with agriculture, environmental sustainability andlandscape preservation.

The result is represented by sun-tracking aerial systems perfectly integrated with farming and installed on suspended movable structures inter-connected through an innovative wireless control and communication system.

This technology is applicable also to lands subject to flooding along lines of communications (roads, motorways, railways, etc.), surrounding embankments of waterways (rivers, streams and storage basins), lands to be reclaimed or no longer used and, more generally, all areas to be returned to farming.

Agriculture on the ground floor, first floor energy. This is the best summary of the "Food and Energy" project.
