Sustainable energy use in horticulture: Wind turbines - latest updates and potential7 November 2022 7 November 2022
Join us on Monday, 7 November at 4pm for webinar on sustainable energy solutions in horticulture using wind power as an energy source, hosted by the Teagasc Horticulture Development Department and Teagasc Energy Specialist Barry Caslin.
The ongoing shift away from fossil fuels is creating demand for renewable energy generation. Wind turbines are a well-established technology and considered mutually compatible with solar power. With potential power being produced twenty four hours a day it can be matched well with known base load demand. Businesses can also benefit from a Government subsidy support for microgeneration (MSS) .
Teagasc Energy Specialist Barry Caslin will present an overview of wind power, turbine technology and review key considerations. Scenarios for horticultural producers will be assed and there will be an opportunity for questions from viewers to be discussed.
