Task 1.1 - Improvement, development and promotion of farm energy efficiency


Task goals

  • Realization of a study on the average energy consumption (thermal and electric) for farms, zootechnics and forestry companies in different areas of the territory.

  • Study of available technologies and innovations in order to improve energy efficiency, also enhancing the resources of the company and its territory.

  • Development of efficiency improvement systems in leading companies.


Description of the activities to be implemented

  • Study of virtuous models for energy efficiency of agroforestry companies.

  • Realization of at least 3 seminars and/or workshop or multimedia product.

  • Publication of tools to encourage agricultural companies to use current incentives and proposals for new incentives for the sector.

  • Planning of a dissemination campaign by sector magazines or multimedia channels.

  • Development of a support system for forestry companies to improve energy efficiency by improving site logistics and environmental sustainability in the production of wood chips.


Carried out activities

Conference: "Energy efficiency in the agricultural and agro-industrial system. How to save energy to be more competitive and more sustainable" of November 9th, 2018.



Task 1.2 - Improvement, development and promotion of energy efficiency for protected crops and for related spaces suitable to agricultural activity


Task goals

  • Realization of a study on the average energy consumption (thermal and electric) for protected crops, buildings and areas functional to agricultural activity.

  • Study of available technologies and innovations in order to improve energy efficiency, also enhancing the resources of the company and its territory.

  • Development of efficiency improvement systems in leading companies.


Description of the activities to be implemented

  • The activities of  Task 1.2 reflect the provisions of the Task 1.1 and will be primarly addressed to buildings connected to agricultural companies as greenhouses and processing industries.

  • Study of virtuous models for energy efficiency of  protected crops and buildings related to agricultural companies.

  • Training and dissemination activities: realization of at least 3 seminars and/or workshops concerning the greenhouse sector.

  • Preparation of online multimedia modules as provided by Task 2.1, in order to spread and inform agricultural companies on existing incentive systems and new incentives for the industry.


Carried out activities

Conference: "Energy efficiency in the agricultural and agro-industrial system. How to save energy to be more competitive and more sustainable" of November 9th, 2018.



Task 1.3 - Dissemination and advertising of Best Practices related to the energy efficiency of the company machinery fleet


Task goals

  • Create a new categorization standard for agricultural and forestry tractors, according to their energy efficiency.


Description of the activities to be implemented

By way of task activities, consumption details extrapolated from those of the OECD tests will be collected and processed, in order to provide the basic information necessary to develop a proposal for a new categorization standard for agricultural and forestry tractors, according to their energy efficiency.

Planned activities are as follows:

  • Develop a Project database on the energy efficiency of agricultural and forestry tractors.

  • Publication with guide to the consultation of the database.

  • Create a correlation between the categorization of tractors and the criteria to grant benefits according to greater energy efficiency.

  • Provide users with tools to identify the most efficient machines, thus contributing to a reduction in fuel consumption and a consequent reduction in emissions.

  • Elaboration of a proposal for a new categorization of agricultural and forestry tractors, according to their energy efficiency.

  • Organization of 1/2 annual workshops.


Carried out activities

Conference (EIMA 2018): "Energy efficiency of the agricultural tractor. How to save energy to be more competitive and more sustainable" of November 8th, 2018.
