Energy Efficient Agriculture Phase I
Energy Efficient Agriculture was a project which aimed to raise awareness about energy use in agricultural properties, in order to achieve efficiencies and conversions.
The project has increased knowledge on energy issues among farmers and thus increase the interest and expertise for energy efficiency measures in agriculture. The project has also raised the municipal energy and climate advisors’ expertise in energy efficiency in agriculture to improve energy efficiency in agricultural properties.
The project has during the spring of 2008 realized that there is a great possibility of saving 35% of the electricity use in a medium sized dairy farm. This phase of the project resulted in three more phases. Phase I of the project lasted between 2007 and 2008.
