EBC Renewable Energy Seminar: Sustainable Regional Agriculture through Renewable Energy
March 19, 2009 @ 7:30 am - 11:30 am EDT
As the cost of energy increases, the availability of renewable energy is playing a greater role in supporting the sustainability of the agricultural industry in New England. Recognizing the growing importance of renewable energy, this EBC program will focus on the use of renewable energy generation technologies, including anaerobic digestion technology, energy efficiency, and solar on the farm. The feasibility and the economics of these various technologies and projects will be reviewed. Presentations will also address the aggregating of various feed stocks in order to enhance the economic viability of projects. Farm waste, food processing plant waste, and municipal sludge are just a few examples of feed stocks that can generate biogas to produce electricity and hot water.
