Andy Mayer, IEA Energy Analyst, has been quoted in City A.M. on solar panels on farm land.

On how to make the most out of agricultural land, the article reads:

“Separately, Andy Mayer, energy analyst at free-market think tank the Institute of Economic Affairs warned the Government against central planning for land use and urged them not to get in the way of farmers with top-down mandates.

“Commenting on solar projects, he noted that livestock and solar panels can “happily coexist,” and improve the viability of farmland.”
