Spain-based energy company Iberdrola has launched Perseo, an international start-up program aimed at identifying competitive and innovative solutions to combine solar photovoltaic plants with activities related to agriculture, horticulture, livestock, fish-farming or bee-keeping.

The company said projects and solutions will be evaluated based on costs, technological maturity, crop diversity, and level of digitization among other things.

The contest’s winner will be financially backed to develop and build its projects. In addition, Iberdrola will provide technical support to test the winning solution, by giving it access to equipment, teams, infrastructures, high-tech sites, and co-working areas.

Interested developers will have time to submit their proposals by November 6.

Iberdrola is currently investing heavily in large-scale PV and green hydrogen in Spain.
