New Reader About Sustainable Energy Solutions in Agriculture
The world’s agri-food supply chains are being challenged
30 percent of the available energy globally is used for producing and processing food. Sustainable energy solutions in agri-food chains are required. Approaches are required that enhance food and energy security but tackle climate change at the same time
To distribute and disseminate knowledge about sustainable energy solutions a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) called Powering Agriculture – Sustainable Energy for Food has been held for eight weeks in 2016. Almost 1,400 people around the world took part, two-thirds of them living in the global south.
