2022 Irrigation Australia International Conference and Exhibition

Interest in renewables is increasing markedly amid soaring electricity prices

The 2022 Irrigation Australia International Conference and Exhibition is being held soon, for the first time including a renewable energy workshop. Interest in renewables is increasing markedly amid soaring electricity prices.

According to the National Irrigators’ Council, 93 per cent of fruit, nuts and grapes, 83 per cent of vegetables, 48 per cent of dairy products and 100 per cent of rice is produced by irrigated agriculture.

The renewable energy workshop on October 6 will bring together farmers and industry experts to discuss the uptake of solar, batteries, micro-grids and agrivoltaics (the combining of solar and farming) in the sector and how emissions and power costs can be cut.
