The outcome of online questionnaire and a series of interviews KTN made to its AgriFood network.

To achieve UK’s net zero ambitious there is a requirement for the Agriculture and Food (AgriFood) sector to move to cleaner technologies. This includes the UK Government investing £80m in electrification technologies through the Driving the Electric Revolution Challenge.

From July to August 2021, KTN consulted its AgriFood networks to identify opportunities and challenges related to the adoption and the implementation of Power Electronics, Electric Machines and Drives (PEMD) in the AgriFood Sector.

AgriFood encompasses a huge and diverse sector. From farm-to-fork, there are multiple opportunities for PEMD, and during this consultation it was noticeable that the “easy” targets have been or are being successfully addressed, however there are several areas that require a new set of expertise, investment and possibly a rethink of the UK farm.

Join this webinar to learn the outcomes of an online questionnaire and a series of interviews to relevant stakeholders from farmers to construction and agricultural machinery companies who represent 34 organisations. The KTN agri team will highlight the obstacles and opportunities to the adoption of PEMD in the Agricultural sector.

The ISCF Driving the Electric Revolution “Engage with…” webinar series offers leading companies and organisations a platform to present to you:

  • Who they are and what they do;
  • Their PEMD growth journey/roadmap and what they are doing in PEMD;
  • Their challenges and future PEMD supply chain requirements, with a view of exploring future opportunities for partnerships/collaborations/projects.

All with the aim for companies and organisations to seize the economic opportunities from the global transition to clean technologies and electrification.
