Leading renewable energy show returns with dedicated farm diversification advice. Hushabye Farm will be on site representing the AAI and sharing our Alpaca experience and goals with people interested in an alternative farming enterprise
Energy Now Expo Ireland is boosting its offering by including a Rural Business Expo, to showcase expert farm diversification advice. The pioneering event for farmers and landowners has announced that it’s rebranding as ‘Energy and Rural Business Show Ireland’.
Commenting on the IFA’s involvement, Fintan Conway, secretary renewables project group at the IFA says: “We're delighted to be associated with the new Energy and Rural Business Show, following on from the unprecedented success of Energy Now Expo. The event continues to be the leading source of cutting-edge renewable energy advice for Irish farmers and landowners and the new Rural Business Expo is a welcome addition."
Barry Caslin, energy and rural development specialist at Teagasc, is speaking at the show and is clear that there is a strong need for up to date renewable energy and farm diversification advice. "Ireland has committed to producing at least 16% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020 and farmers are looking for land use alternatives and to benefit from green initiatives. Irish farmers can take the lead in renewables and energy innovation as we transition to a low carbon economy and benefit from the latest opportunities at this leading industry event.”
“The show will provide farmers and landowners with specialist advice about how to go about setting up highly profitable renewable energy projects and farm diversification initiatives,” says David Jacobmeyer, event director.
Energy and Rural Business Show Ireland will feature:
· Dedicated conference sessions on opportunities in anaerobic digestion and biogas, biomass, heat pumps, hydropower, solar, storage and wind
· An exhibition showcasing the latest farm diversification and renewable energy opportunities
· ‘How-to’ farm diversification workshops
· The most cutting-edge developments in renewable technology
· Innovative new products
· Updates on government policies and support
Energy and Rural Business Show Ireland is supported by the Irish Creamery Milk Suppliers Association (ICMSA), the Irish Cattle and Sheep Farmers Association (ICSA), The Alpaca Association of Ireland, Macra Na Feirme and the Renewable Gas Forum of Ireland (RGFI).
The event is free to attend, and places can be booked today: http://www.
