1May2013: Power to the Farm, a Renewables Seminar

Please find attached a copy of our provisional programme for our next Renewables Seminar being held here at the college on the 1st May 2013, “Power to the Farm 2”.

The day will provide an introduction to some of the Farm Scale Technologies that are currently available to farmers for generating their own power, the costs, benefits, funding streams and impact on the environment. We realise that this is a large subject and that we will not be able to cover all the areas but hope to provide some current case studies and an opportunity for you to discuss your own ideas and projects with the experts during the afternoon open discussion groups. There will be a mini-exhibition during the networking lunch and the chance to tour our Biomass Boiler with our Estates Director Graham Barton.

The attendance fee includes all refreshments, lunch and delegate information pack. However, places are limited and by registration only, the 50% funding for Farmers and Foresters in England will be issued on a first come first served basis.

We do hope that you find the event of interest and if you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards and best wishes,

Beverley
