CLIMATE SMART FARM PROJECTS

CLIMATE SMART FARM PROJECT SITES

Dromana

Echuca

Warragul

Ballarat

Albury

We are developing a number of showcase ‘Climate Smart Farm Projects’ which aim to inspire sustainable and regenerative development of farmland, landfill sites and communities.

These showcase projects combine local renewable energy production with carbon farming as well as providing local economic and educational development opportunities.

Our pilot site selection process is well underway and we are pleased to say 2019 will be an exciting year for our team as we engage with local stakeholders.

Each ‘Climate Smart Farm Project’ will provide a hub for interested parties to gain an understanding of the benefits ecologically sound renewable energy and regenerative farming can provide. The project data will be available for schools and universities as well as community and business groups to see real-world examples of measured change.

There are current 5 key sites under feasibility assessment in Victoria, Australia.

Carbon Emission Reduction

The Dromana solar farm will reduce carbon emissions by 6,200 tons every year

Equivalent Cars oof the Road

The clean energy produced by the Dromana solar farm is the equivalent to taking 3,000 cars off the road

Equivalent Tree Planting

The solar farm project reduces carbon emissions is equivalent to planting 15,600 trees

Inspiring Learning

Our pilot sites will have a cutting edge digital immersive education centre with interactive learning and ever evolving data streams for teachers and students to engage with.

Local Power

The solar farm will produce the equivalent electricity of 1250 Australian homes

 

The ‘Climate Smart Farm Projects’ seek to demonstrate how the latest in intelligent technology combined with regenerative practices can provide a clean and sustainable future that is both economically as well as environmentally positive.

Regenerative-Precision Agriculture

Demonstrating how the latest in digital positioning and data technology can reduce agriculture’s carbon footprint.

Carbon Farming

Showing how business and Government are actively supporting the real-world uptake of farm practices that promote soil health and create Paris Agreement accredited carbon sequestration certificates.

Renewable Energy

As part of our projects we are building ecologically designed solar farms with a positive environmental footprint and share local value.

Education Centre

Our pilot sites will have a cutting edge digital immersive education centre with interactive learning and ever evolving data streams for teachers and students to engage with.

Farm Diversification

Droughts and challenging economic models for some farmers have helped inspire alternative revenue streams which our projects intend to promote.

 

Social Capital

The Volt Farmer projects create social impact credits as well as local shared value for the host community.

Indigenous Australian Culture

Promoting opportunities for the Indigenous Australian community as well as a living history experience with the online learning portal and immersive educational centre.

Natural Capital

Measuring and promoting bio-diversity using easily shared communication platforms.

Educational Outreach

Demonstrating how the latest in digital positioning technology can reduce agriculture’s carbon footprint.

Landscape Hydrology

Promoting data and current understanding of how to manage the landscape’s hydrological function to build resilience through strategic management.

Digital Immersive Learning

Our pilot ‘Climate Smart Technology Centres’ aim to inspire learning and discovery at the audience’s individual pace.

SCHOOLS CLIMATE ACTION PROJECTS 2019

Be part of the climate solution. Every clean kWh of electricity bought from our solar projects restores local farmland and reduces your carbon footprint.

 

Get your school to buy clean electricity direct from one of our solar farms or invite us to install a solar system on your school roof and then watch how we transform a local farm to create healthy soils, bustling bio-diversity and technology insights

 

 

This initiative is open to schools of all sizes from small country towns to metropolitan scale. We also welcome schools and colleges regardless of how much power they consume. There is no minimum requirement. 

Create an Inspiring Future

Get your school to buy clean electricity direct from one of our solar farms or invite us to install a solar system on your school roof and then watch how we transform a local farm to create healthy soils, bustling bio-diversity and technology insights

Participating schools will have access to live project data, wildlife camera feeds and the design process in real time. Imagine what is possible for science, mathematics, art & design and computer system design with a stream of data from a live project.

Our projects measure everything from bio-diversity, soil biological health, renewable energy performance, and weather as well as providing the opportunity for teachers to create their own bespoke live learning classroom.

Get Involved

Participating schools will get direct access to the educational resources and cheaper clean electricity
