On June 13th 2023, we hosted a webinar titled “Solar Thermal Energy in Agriculture – Supporting technology uptake and political incentives”. The webinar highlighted the advantages of next-generation STE systems for a greener future and aimed to encourage support and funding (from policymakers) to promote the uptake of these solutions across North-West Europe by farmers.
This webinar was open to all and was targeted at policymakers working at EU, national, regional and local level, as well as farmers, researchers and anyone interested in reducing GHG emissions using renewable energies through sustainable farming.
