Reducing energy and input costs – regional roadshows

The NFU and NFU Energy are running a series of roadshows looking at opportunities to reduce energy and input costs. You'll get practical guidance on improving resilience and sustainability in uncertain times.

You will hear from both NFU experts on the latest best practice and from NFU members about their on-the-ground experiences.

In the afternoon there will be optional workshop sessions for anyone wanting to spend more time getting into practical details and mapping out specific next steps for their farms.

Lunch will be provided.

Cutting energy costs

With rising energy prices, a renewed focus on energy security and the UK’s commitment to net zero, there has never been a better time for NFU members to improve their energy efficiency and develop renewable energy schemes.

We will look at the different options and talk about how NFU Energy is helping members benefit.

Mitigating fertiliser price inflation

UK farming businesses are facing triple-digit inflation in key inputs that underpin the food production system, in particular fertiliser, which is closely linked to the cost of gas.

We will talk about what NFU members can do to improve their nutrient use efficiency. We will also give an overview of the work we’re doing to influence government policy.

Carbon offsetting

Global demand for carbon offsets is expected to grow considerably in the coming decade and UK agriculture has a potential role to play in meeting it. However, significant commercial, policy and science risks and uncertainties remain.

We will explore the different ways in which agriculture could play a role.
