These activities include clustering with other projects/initiatives for supporting the extraction of policy recommendations and best practices adoption, among others.
AgroBioHeat aims to promote modern, cost-effective and low-emission heating solutions using agricultural biomass for rural Europe. Agrobiomass is an abundant but underexploited resource in Europe that can be mobilized as a renewable energy source for heating applications across a variety of end uses: domestic sector, farms, greenhouses, agro-industries, district heating networks, municipal and commercial buildings, and others. The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under Grant Agreement No 818369.
AgroFossilFree – Strategies and technologies to achieve a European Fossil-energy-free agriculture project aims to create a framework under which critical stakeholders will cooperate to evaluate and promote currently available FEFTS in EU agriculture to diminish in the short term and eliminate in the long run fossil fuels use in any farming process from cradle to farm gate, while maintaining yield and quality of the end-product.
HyPErFarm – Hydrogen and Photovoltaic Electrification on Farm is an Innovation Action (IA) project which aims to demonstrate combined agrovoltaic systems, with dual land use for crop production and simultaneous power production. HyperFarm joins multiple types of actors with the objective to optimize viable agrivoltaic business models as well as test the marketability of the products, via inclusion of new innovative photovoltaic technologies, radically new crop production systems, stakeholder innovation workshops, and citizen-consumer acceptance, public perception analysis and farmer adoption studies. HyPErFarm also develops and demonstrates new ways of utilizing and distributing the energy produced on-farm.
TheGreefa – Thermochemical fluids in greenhouse farming project is aimed at a new technology for heating, cooling, air humidity control and water recovery in greenhouses as well as for drying of agricultural goods using thermo-chemical conversion principles based on the use of salt solutions (thermochemical fluids).
RENAISSANCE – RENewAble Integration and SuStainAbility iN energy CommunitiEs project is an Innovation Action (IA) whose aim is to deliver a community-driven scalable and replicable approach, to implement new business models and technologies supporting clean production and shared distribution of energy in local communities.
