Most farm machines are driven by fossil fuels, which contribute to greenhouse gas emissions and, in turn, accelerate climate change. Such negative environmental effect can be mitigated by the promotion of renewable resources, such as solar, wind, biomass, tidal, geo-thermal, small-scale hydro, biofuels and wave-generated power. There is a need for promoting use of renewable energy systems for sustainable agriculture, e.g. solar photovoltaic water pumps and electricity, greenhouse technologies, solar dryers for post-harvest processing, and solar hot water heaters. In remote agricultural lands, the underground submersible solar photovoltaic water pump is economically viable and also an environmentally-friendly option compared with diesel generators. If there are adverse climatic conditions for the growth of particular plants in cold climatic zones, there is a need for renewable energy technology, such as greenhouses for maintaining the optimum plant ambient temperature conditions for the growth of plants and vegetables. This presentation discusses in detail the application of new and renewable energy in farming by connecting all aspects of agronomy with ecology, the environment, economics and societal change.
