Modern day competitiveness of agriculture-based economies depends to a large extent on the energy bills of the various players in those countries.
People are also being encouraged nowadays to farm in an eco-friendly and/or sustainable manner to protect the environment and help to slow down climate change-a phenomenon which has and continues to influence the prevalence of the forces of nature negatively on the inhabitants of this earth.
In evaluating and educating our farmers about sustainable energy sources, we will be touching on various energy solutions which are being used in other countries, and their costs of set up as well as advantages and cost savings, when used on a farm.
Our current focus will be on the following energy topics and systems:
- What is power and what are its uses on a typical farm
- Forms of energy
- Types of renewable energy sources: wind, solar, hydrological, biological
- Costs of energy start-ups
- Energy Conservation
- Climate-Smart energy solutions
- Energy Economics and Entrepreneurship
On iQFarmer you will find cost schedules and manuals on sustainable acquisition and usage, from which we hope you will be able to select the most cost-effective solutions and profitable combinations to help you in setting up a profitable agricultural enterprise.
