      Given the importance of the agricultural community, please see email below for an outstanding report that shows the tremendous economic benefits that FITs are delivering to the agricultural community around the world through a gamut of renewable energy technologies, including biomass, biogas, solar, and wind.  

      Of course, feel free to share this information with others...

      Best regards,

      Beyond Biofuels: Renewable Energy Opportunities for U.S. Farmers

      As farmers struggle with increasing energy costs and decreasing farm incomes, untapped business opportunities in renewable energy hold the promise of addressing both of these problems, while also offering numerous other benefits such as rural economic development, national energy security and improved environmental conditions.  American farmers have captured some renewable energy opportunities available to them, notably those associated with ethanol production, but have not yet developed most renewable technologies to their full potential.  German farmers, on the other hand, have used renewable to their advantage and have established a much more robust agriculture-renewables connection than their American counterparts.

      The report explores these lessons at the intersection of renewable energy and agriculture on both sides of the Atlantic. It provides an overview of renewable energy on farms and the drivers for deployment in Germany and the U.S. The report concludes with suggestions for which drivers in Germany may benefit U.S. farmers and proposed recommendations to help American farmers become “energy farmers” in the 21st century.
