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, will launch at the National Agriculture and Exhibition Centre (NAEC), Stoneleigh, on 9-10 March 2021.

Formerly Energy and Rural Business Show, the event has rebranded, relocated and reasserted its focus to ensure that practical solutions to tackling climate change through the generation of renewable energy, the implementation of low carbon initiatives and best practice in both environmental and carbon management, take centre stage.

Low Carbon Agriculture will combine the latest software and innovation with the physical show, running Digital Insights webinars on the run up to the event:

The monthly Digital Insights webinars will run on the following dates:

  • 14 October 2020 – Opportunities for Renewable Energy on Farms
  • 18 November 2020 – Innovations in Agri-Tech
  • 16 December 2020 – Low Carbon Transport
  • 20 January 2021 – Environmental Land Management (ELM)
  • 17 February 2021 – Show Preview

You can register here.

Low Carbon Agriculture is also launching a networking app to enhance visitor experience, inviting delegates to book in one-to-one appointments in advance of the event, as well as attending networking roundtable discussions run by exhibitors and to continue these connections well beyond the show.

Held in association with the NFU, Low Carbon Agriculture incorporates four expos in one show and has announced new features for the 2021 event, including the addition of ‘Environmental Business Expo’ and ‘Farm Technology Expo’ to compliment ‘Energy Now Expo’ and ‘Low Emission Vehicles Expo.’

Jonathan Scurlock, Chief Adviser, Renewable Energy and Climate Change for the NFU said:

“The NFU strongly supports the launch of Low Carbon Agriculture and its move to Stoneleigh Park. The event has always been a trailblazer, and its focus on low carbon agriculture, natural capital enhancement and agri-tech is very much in tune with current policy, at a key time of change in agriculture."

The event’s move to NAEC Stoneleigh, positions Low Carbon Agriculture in a well-known agricultural venue, in the middle of the country, more easily accessible to a larger audience from all over the UK.

The show is committed to reducing its impact on the environment, going paper free and  implementing digital check in and navigation, ensuring any materials used are sustainable, responsibly sourced or can be recycled, with a ban on the use of all single use plastic.

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.

The show remains free to attend and features the Energy Now Expo, in which an exhibition will be accompanied by an energy storage theatre and a cutting-edge conference programme, covering all forms of renewables. The Low Emission Vehicles Expo will showcase the latest low-carbon transport and machinery solutions, highlight the related opportunities, and feature a test track. The Environmental Business Expo will include an exhibition and conference sessions offering practical guidance to farmers on carbon and Environmental Land Management (ELM). Suppliers of innovative agri-tech will take part in the exhibition and workshop area within the Farm Technology Expo.
