Solutions for energy production will be featured at the Espace for the Future 2019. Today, farmers play a key role in the climate transition. Thanks to solar energy and biogas systems, they help reduce dependence on fossil fuels.
Agriculture is also a source of climate solutions. Farmers can make a real difference when it comes to carbon storage, a major issue for everyone. The experimental farm of Trévarez, in the Finistère, involved in the low-carbon project, will demonstrate this process. The farm looks at a number of factors, including the age at first calving, crossbreeding, carbon storage in grasslands and hedges, etc.
Today, agroforestry also has an important place in a virtuous circle: hedge wood is a source of carbon sequestration through photosynthesis, and will be used as fuel or building materials.
