Leif report: Electrifying Farms, Decarbonizing Agriculture
Updated: Jun 10, 2021
We're excited about the sustainable transformation of agriculture. You should be too. Read the full report here.
Farms are electrifying. Agriculture is decarbonizing. Roughly a quarter of the world population is employed in agriculture. The changes afoot affect billions of us.
Ahead of our webinar - Electrifying Farms, Decarbonizing Agriculture - on Wednesday June 2nd, we've published a report of the same title.
The report, authored by Leif Capital's Matt Stamp, starts by taking a look the huge GHG emissions of the agricultural sector, and recognises that the composition of these emissions should not distract from a simple solution; decarbonization through sustainable electrification with renewables.
Matt then considers the broader energy landscape, and the challenges facing the move from centralised power generation to integrated, distributed sources of energy. The second half of this report focuses on case studies, where we look at some of the leading venture-backed innovators busy electrifying and decarbonizing farms.
An in depth exploration of Eocycle Technologies (disclosure; Eocycle is a client of Leif Capital) is followed by a briefer look at a range of start-ups from around the globe, all focused on electrification and/or decarbonization.
