Lincoln University and the Ministry for Primary Industries have partnered to start the Energy Demonstration Farm, based on a six-hectare farm site which has the aim of finding sustainable energy solutions to help meet the Government’s carbon reduction requirements. The farm will feature solar and wind power as well as bio-fuel and energy storage solutions and aims to provide data for research and innovation. Dr Wim de Koning from Lincoln University is helping to lead the project, and he stated that it is imperative that the agri-food sector transitions to sustainable energy use. The project will discover the most successful solutions so that small to medium sized businesses and farms can assess the viability and put into action the solutions that will work best for them.
