Priorities for energy efficiency measures in agriculture

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This report provides research gaps and priorities for energy efficiency measures in agriculture across Europe, based on the analysis of the Coordination and Support Action AGREE (Agriculture & Energy Efficiency) funded by the 7th research framework of the EU (www.agree.aua.gr). The analysis from seven countries (Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Poland, Finland, Greece) shows the potential impact of different energy efficiency measures across Europe and research needs to improve energy efficiency. Potentials and constraints were identified for the categories: crop production, greenhouse production, animal housing and systems approaches.
