Unleashing Opportunities for Australian Farmers (Agrivoltaics)

17 Apr 2024
Stream 2
With a changing climate and international market uncertainty, imagine being able to make your farm enterprise more resilient by taking advantage of innovative approaches.
Using a regenerative enterprise model, farmers are finding new ways to create value from renewable energy, decarbonised transport, carbon farming, controlled environment horticulture and tourism.

Australian farmers have the opportunity to benefit from the clean tech revolution both as producers as well as consumers. Reducing the dependency on imported fossil fuel products and creating local community shared value, new models based on well tested principals are gaining traction in Australia. Technology coupled with Australia’s abundant natural resources and innovative thinking can potentially offer drought proof income streams keeping families on the land.
