The IDAE is working to implement energy efficiency measures to reduce the negative impacts of the increase in energy consumption (costs and emissions) in agricultural activity. To this end, it aims to implement a series of key actions with potential for direct and significant impact on the sector’s energy indicators.
These actions are:
- Develop training and information mechanisms for energy efficiency.
- Execute a plan for modernising Spain’s existing tractors that includes energy efficiency criteria.
- Implement a set of regulatory initiatives that favour the implementation or replacement of irrigation systems by more efficient ones.
The IDAE offers technical and financial support to the project Peixe Verde.
The final purpose of this project is for fishing to incorporate energy efficiency criteria into its development and management as a basic criterion for its viability, reducing polluting emissions and improving its competitiveness.
