Are Farming and Renewable Technologies Compatible?


Are Farming and Renewable Technologies Compatible?

Farmland has been used for both food product and energy for hundreds of years, providing fuel for heating, cooking and traction power.

Today more than a third of farmers are using wind, the sun and energy crops to produce clean low-carbon energy. A variety of farm-based renewables already provide electricity and heat for on-farm use, sometimes also supplying local businesses and homes in rural communities.

Greenhouse gas emissions from British farming have been cut by 20% since the introduction of renewables in the 90’s. Climate-friendly energy produced on farms could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 17 million tonnes of CO2 by 2020 and agriculture could be the source of more than one-quarter of national renewable energy needs.

Renewable technologies such as solar roofs, solar fields, heat pumps and biomass boilers are all becoming more commonplace in the countryside and they are very much a part of the future of the agricultural economy.

As the environment becomes an increasingly important issue, farmers are finding creative ways to use land efficiently to produce clean energy and maximise ecological benefit. For instance solar farms can combine panels with small livestock to maximise the benefits of land used for renewable energy.

With more and more farmers investing into renewable energy the NFU believes that domestic land-based renewable energy can deliver up to a quarter of UK clean energy needs by 2020.

Luckily here at Ecolution we provide installation services for the farming industry with a variety of renewable technologies.

These includes Solar PV, Energy Storage, Heat Pumps and Biomass systems all which can be installed by are professional in-house team.
