Dig into all things agrivoltaics at the 2nd annual Solar Farm Summit landing once again next to O‛Hare International Airport in the heart of North America‛s heartland for 3 difference-making days of instructive, illuminating and inspiring dual-use development programming July 8-10, 2024! Discover the enormous potential of a new kind of double harvesting that is pairing solar power and agriculture into powerful symbiotic systems of combined production, network with hundreds of attendees and experts, and engage the largest agrivoltaics exhibition in North America via a supersized 2024 Solar Farm Summit (SFS24) at the Loews Chicago O‛Hare Hotel (5300 N River Rd, Rosemont, IL 60018).

SFS24 attendees can expect an immersive solar energy, land use and dual-use experience of the very highest educational caliber. SFS24‛s syllabus-style program builds from entry-level land-based solar development, energy markets, and basics of environment and development; to details of an agrivoltaic project‛s lifecycle from conception through construction, operation and decommissioning; to case studies, policy, government programs, grants and financing, community engagement, land recycling, and advanced topics in applied agrivoltaics; as well as focused workshops and Q&A forums.

Importantly, all the intellectual capital in SFS24‛s high-impact program, including every presentation, will be aggregated with other reference materials submitted by speakers & sponsors into the SFS24 Conference Archive, a digital compendium prepared post event and published free to all attendees.

Beyond the sessions, a supercharged SFS24 social experience will feature 12 scheduled networking opportunities, including hot breakfasts and lunches together each day, and beginning with an official welcome happy hour the evening of 7/8 when the Poster Gallery and Premium Exhibition opens! Over 3 electric days, many hundreds will gather for this uncommonly collaborative cross-continental assembly representing an eclectic cross-section of disciplines: non-profit professionals, landowners, farmers & ranchers, agronomists, conservationists, real estate & environmental professionals, solar developers, attorneys, engineers, investors, utilities, policy makers, economic developers, as well as state & federal government staff. There will be no better opportunity in North America in 2024 to dive into this land use renaissance, steep oneself in working agrivoltaics knowledge, connect with world class solar pros, and plug into a live, in-person agrivoltaics network all in a single event space!

And happening alongside SFS24 is the first ever North American Agrivoltaics Awards, the highly anticipated public competition recognizing the continent‛s best projects and persons, and celebrating them during a dedicated awards ceremony and reception (ticketed separately).

Join the SFS community July 8-10 for 3 brilliant days of education, inspiration, and interpersonal connection at the stunning, sustainability-conscious Loews Chicago O‛Hare Hotel, just a free shuttle away from O‛Hare International Airport and mere blocks from the CTA Blue Line. Plug yourself into the absolutely revolutionary practice of pairing of solar power + agricultural production and meet the real people already doing it at North America‛s Agrivoltaics Expo, the 2024 Solar Farm Summit!
