08 April 2016 - CONFERENCE TITLE: "Geothermal energy and agricultural production: innovative practices"

TEI of Thessaly in the framework of LIFE Adapt2change "Adapt Agricultural Production to climate change and limited water supplies" project organizes on April 08, 2016 at 15.30 p.m. a conference entitled "INNOVATIVE APPLICATIONS in agri-food and environmental sectors."
The event is based on the premise that "Every farmer has at his disposal and an oil well."
During the conference practical approaches to climate change adaptation will be demonstrated, emphasizing the requirements of sound management of Water resources and energy in agriculture. Specifically, there will be presentations on the proper management of water resources and proposals for autonomous geothermal greenhouses will be also presented. Further, the objectives and results of the implementation of pilot geothermal greenhouses in Adapt2change project, quantitative and qualitative characteristics of production and technology and automation will be presented which were used in the autonomous geothermal greenhouses and innovative practices implemented by the use of geothermal energy in agricultural production.
Finally, the utilization methods of shallow geothermal energy in the primary sector will be analyzed and will present concrete examples of geothermal applications. Moreover, it will become's thermal approach of underground reservoirs and presented the results in improving productivity levels.

The event will be held in the auditorium of the Technological Educational Institute of Thessaly in Larissa.
