Workshops highlight agricultural energy audits

The new Center for Agricultural Energy Redirecting to a non-government site (CAE) at Colorado State University is offering a winter workshop series for power providers and their food producer customers.

 Each workshop will focus on the potential benefits of agricultural energy audits and will be supplemented by information on energy topics such as biofuels, small hydropower and anaerobic digestion, to name a few. The series begins Jan. 31, with a workshop in Wellington, Colo., on how agricultural energy audits relate to energy efficiency and anaerobic digestion.

The events are taking place around Colorado, with local agricultural organizations co-hosting. Most workshops are free and lunch will be provided for those who pre-register. Visit CAE to see the agenda Redirecting to a non-government site and register.
