Agricultural energy systems

Agricultural energy systems

Agriculture accounts for a significant and difficult to decarbonise proportion of both the UK and University of Leeds carbon footprint. Energy is central to decarbonising agriculture, yet there is relatively little research in this area.

Bringing together a wealth of interdisciplinary expertise at the University of Leeds with partners from across the farming and energy sectors, we are developing innovative solutions that can help to decarbonise both the University Research Farm and the wider sector across the UK.
