Energy in Agriculture 2020 Cancelled

This year, due to Covid 19, unfortunately we have to postpone Energy in Agriculture until 2021. Energy in Agriculture is essentially about improving the knowledge base of farmers, agri-business and other stakeholders to ensure the agricultural sector can seize opportunities in the Energy Transition to create sustainable income and employment through new environmental business opportunities. We hope to use the next few months to provide an unrivalled knowledge base of these opportunities. We’ll be back in Gurteen next year, which will allow all the informal conversations, the demonstrations, the products and the personal touch that make Energy in Agriculture so vibrant.

Keep safe and well everyone!

SAVE THE DATE: Energy in Agriculture 15th July 2020

Focus on Rural Diversification


The Energy in Agriculture committee today announced their fifth consecutive year running Energy in Agriculture in Gurteen. Energy in Agriculture 2020 will focus on rural diversification, forestry and energy usage. We will hear from the champions of the sectors and their success stories.

Paul Kenny CEO of Tipperary Energy Agency says ‘’Energy in Agriculture has always been about identifying the economic or environmental opportunities for farmers in the energy transition. This year, with solar installations in full flight and people more conscious of energy and carbon, we’re hoping EIA will provide farmers with more opportunities for income diversification.’’

Reasons to attend.

• The rural diversification talks are new this year and will be championed by pioneers of the industry who have turned their agricultural land into a business in other industries such as agri-food, tourism
• Energy in Agriculture aims to showcase good news stories in the agricultural sector by inviting speakers from around Ireland who have success stories to tell. Attendees will learn the tools to make this success happen on their own farms.

Energy in Agriculture will take place on the Wednesday the 15th of July 2020 in Gurteen College, Tipperary. For more information check out our website or contact

Last year we had over 70 exhibitors from a variety of sectors: biomass, solar, heat pumps, education etc.

We have limited spaces left for exhibitors in 2020 so please book online now to avoid disappoint or contact Stephanie for further details
