Ireland has committed to producing at least 16% of its energy from renewable sources by 2020 and the next Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) is said to be fully aligned with the need to prioritise climate action. Farmers looking to benefit from green initiatives are being urged to attend Energy and Rural Business Show, taking place at Hub at Cillin Hill, Kilkenny on 23 and 24 October 2019.
This year the show is boosting its offering by including both Energy Now Expo and Rural Business Expo, so farmers can hear from experts on diversification and the growing opportunities and grants available for on-farm renewables.

Opportunities for farmers in Anaerobic Digestion (AD) and biogas will be outlined at the Energy and Rural Business show Ireland, in Kilkenny on 23 and 24 October. Expert speakers and businesses will showcase practical ways that farmers can make additional income and benefit the environment by supplying medium to large scale AD plants or commissioning their own facilities.
PJ McCarthy, chairman of the Renewable Gas Forum Ireland (RGFI) and Seán Finan CEO of the Irish Bioenergy Association (IrBEA), are among the speakers who will outline plans to deploy up to 25 medium to large scale biogas plants by 2030.
