The Clean Technology Centre has been involved in the Smart Farming programme being led by the IFA and which is funded by the EPA.
CTC has provided input in terms of energy and water resource efficiency potential on farms. This involved participating in some of the on-site cost savings studies on farms in 2013 and 2014, as well as some of the discussion groups for farmers to discuss the results.
CTC also trained a number of agria-dvisers on how to assess the energy savings potential on farms. A presentation on potential energy savings for farmers was made to several hundred farmers in Portlaoise in November 2014. Download this presentation here.
