Digital Dairy Chain Innovation Voucher: Littleton Farm - Exploring diverse renewables portfolio to accelerate net-zero transition

Project: Knowledge Exchange

Project Details


The goal of this project is to significantly improve energy efficiency of dairy farms with local energy generation by understanding energy demand on the farm and demand flexibilities and provide a set of recommendations such as load shifting, change of practices or processes, upgrade/retrofit or new investments. The methodology will be built leveraging knowledge gained from two dairy farms in the Luce Bay area that are of different scale (small scale ~300 cows to medium-large scale ~1100 cows) with different milking equipment (parallel/rotary parlours), different renewable on-site generation sources including solar and wind power, and hence very different energy demand.
