iGLOBES would like to congratulate Greg Barron-Gafford and his team for getting the $10M grant for his research on agrivoltaics - "the co-locating of agriculture and solar photovoltaic panels – which can maintain crop production, produce renewable energy, lower water use and increase farm profitability. Greg Barron-Gafford, professor in the School of Geography, Development and Environment in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, will be the physical science lead on the project. In 2017, Barron-Gafford's research team, which includes UArizona undergraduate and graduate students, began growing crops beneath 9-foot solar arrays at the university's Biosphere 2 facility, where Barron-Gafford is the director of food, energy and water resilience solutions.
