Low Carbon Agriculture, the new event showcasing opportunities in low carbon energy, technological advances and Environmental Land Management (ELM), for a profitable and sustainable future in farming, has announced it will certainly go ahead in March 2021 – online.

Held in association with the National Farmers Union (NFU), the show will move to a fully interactive digital format on 9th and 10th March 2021, to support farmers during not only the challenging Covid-19 pandemic, but through a rapidly evolving industry.

Maintaining its renowned multi-streamed conference, exhibition, networking benefits, and four key areas of focus – Energy Now Expo, Environmental Business Expo, Low Emission Vehicles Expo and Farm Technology Expo, Low Carbon Agriculture Show has extensively analysed different formats, gaining feedback from farmers who have attended online conferences, to create a digital event which delivers.

Event organiser and Energy Now publisher, David Jacobmeyer, enthuses that the new digital format will enable more farmers and landowners to access the information they need:

“The digital show will allow greater access for a wider audience, providing the ability to engage with suppliers, in one to one conversations or as a group, gain expert knowledge and debate views raised in the conference sessions and easily network online with experts from across the renewables, agricultural, environmental and transport sectors.”

“The decision to go digital will not only ensure safety, but also guarantees that the event and the essential information it offers are delivered on the dates advertised. Bringing certainty to the industry at an uncertain time, is ultimately why we have made the decision to progress to an online show,” says David.

Low Carbon Agriculture show has had a fantastic response from its Digital Insights webinars, which take place each month on the run up to the event, covering pressing topics in agriculture such as ‘Reaching net zero in agriculture’ and ‘Opportunities in renewable energy on farms’. The next webinar will cover ‘Innovations in agri-tech’ and will go live on 18th November at 18:00.

Spring boarding off the success of ‘Energy and Rural Business Show’ in 2019 and 2020, the event continues to be ahead of the curve, evolving from its roots as ‘Energy Now Expo’, and celebrates 12 years of success next March.

David Jacobmeyer adds:

“Our aim is to provide farmers and landowners with information and guidance on ways to combat climate change, to align with developments in agri-policy and to identify the business opportunities which will allow them to continue providing their essential products and services in both a profitable and sustainable way. The importance of supporting farmers as they transition to a new subsidy framework has not gone away.”
