16Jun2014: Re-fuelling the Countryside

Re-fuelling the Countryside: Opportunities for Sustainable Rural and Farm Transport
12 to 3pm on 16th June 2014.
The Farmers Club, Whitehall, London, SW1A 2EL.

I have great pleasure in inviting you to the launch of the RASE report, “Re-Fuelling the Countryside: Opportunities for Sustainable Rural and Farm Transport” on 16th June.
The report highlights key issues and opportunities for low carbon farm and rural transport fuels and identifies the prospects for farms and rural businesses to generate some of their own fuel and energy needs. It also intends to raise awareness amongst policy makers on the potential impact of low carbon transport in non-urban areas, fitting the rural growth agenda.

British agriculture represents around 8% of all UK transport greenhouse gas emissions – coming from farm transport and other fossil-fuel driven machinery. The farming sector will be expected to implement changes to mitigate against the environmental consequences – as well as acting to reduce the energy and fuel costs incurred in livestock and arable enterprises.

Farms have the potential to be a significant source of renewable energy and transport fuel generation. The prospect of running farm, commercial (HGV) and passenger vehicles on renewable electricity (wind, solar), on biomethane (AD biogas upgrading), on biofuels (biodiesel, bioethanol), from hydrogen and from biomass processes (using gasification and pyrolysis) could have a direct impact upon the farm and rural economy as well as the environment.

We hope very much that you will be able to join us on 16th June to hear firsthand the opportunities that face British agriculture, listen to innovative farm case studies and look forward into the farm of the future.
Please RSVP to Charlotte Johnston via email: charlottej@rase.org.uk or telephone: 07779572598 by Friday 6th June 2014.

Yours sincerely,
David Gardner

Prior to the event – the Technology Strategy Board would like to invite interested parties to a Off-Highway Scoping Workshop between 11-12pm.

The workshop is suitable for those who are:
? Developing technology for the off-highway vehicle sector or
? Are active in other automotive-related supply-chains but willing to collaborate with the off-highway vehicle sector
The free-to-attend workshop will be an open forum in which the scope of a funding competition will be discussed, and input from delegates will help shape any future funding competition call. If you wish to attend this please let Charlotte know when RSVP’ing to the launch event.
