Energy Smart Livestock Farming towards Zero Fossil Fuel Consumption

Project description

Replacing fossil fuels on the farm

From producing fertilisers to packaging olives, farms rely too much on unsustainable fuels. Farmers in Belgium, Italy, Germany and Greece have teamed up to show that it is possible to reduce agriculture’s fossil fuel dependence and move towards the adoption of renewable energy sources. The team are part of the EU-funded RES4LIVE project, which will demonstrate the selected technologies, including PVT systems, PV panels, modular heat pumps, biogas upgrading to biomethane, biomethane-fuelled tractors and electrically powered on-farm machinery. The aim is to replace the use of fossil fuels for certain needs in the pilot farms, proving that it is possible to achieve sustainable farming that is efficient, cost effective and low maintenance.
