The increasing potential of low carbon vehicles and opportunities for renewable fuels on farms and in rural areas will be the focus of a Royal Agricultural Society of England (RASE) showcase at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, on October 8 & 9.
The showcase is part of Nextgen, a renewable energy generation event which includes both exhibition and conference sections, during which RASE will host a panel discussion demonstrating successful case studies.
“There is no doubt that the farm of the future will be very different to that of today,” said RASE CEO David Gardner.
“In recent years, agriculture and energy production have become increasingly interlinked. As such, the farm of the future has the potential to become an important source of renewable fuel and energy, as well as food. It could be the centre of the local community, supplying energy to neighbours sourced from renewable technology on the farm.
“This energy farm’ might also serve a local rural vehicle refuelling station delivering renewable fuels.”
Registration for Nextgen is free.
