Energy Farm

NORWAY

THE ENERGY FARM CONCEPT ORIGINATES

FROM ENERGIGÅRDEN IN BRANDBU, NORWAY

 

Placed in a beautiful landscape at the foot of the old volcano Brandbukampen, surrounded by cultivated land and with the scenic view of the lake Randsfjorden, the Energy Farm has become one of Norway´s bioenergy pioneers. Since it´s start up in 1991 over 35.000 people from 85 countries has visited the farm. 

 

The Energy Farm is the Center of Bioenergy in Norway, providing:

  • Bio- and solar energy in theory and practice 

  • Project development and business plans

  • Courses, education and seminars

  • Advisory, demonstrations and guided tours

  • Production of biofuels and bioheat 

  • 99% renewable energy at the center

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MODERN BIOENERGY IN HISTORICAL SURROUNDINGS

 

The farm consists of buildings from the mid-18th century besides the newer energy barn, a unity of buildings tying the past to the future. The energy barn has been constructed with the future sources of energy and the requirement for environmental protection in mind.

 

Today the barn functions as a combination of a production site and information center for bio- and solar energy as well as offices for The Energy Farm.

 

 

THE ENERGY FARM DEMONSTRATES: 

  • Heating of buildings and tap water with wood chips and solar energy.

  • Production and use of biofuels for transport- bioethanol, biodiesel and biogas for the operation of cars and tractors.

  • Research and test fields for energy forests, energy grass, oil plants etc.

  • Harvesting and processing of forest chips, firewood, straw and other biofuels.

  • Drying of chips, firewood, hay, grain and oil seeds with solar- and bioenergy.

  • Price calculations for bio- and solar energy.

  • Sale and distribution of biofuels.

  • Recycling of sewage water in tree plantations.

  • Energy consumption and production of bioenergy in agriculture and forestry.

  • Energy efficient solutions.

 

 

THE ENERGY FARM ORGANIZES:

  • Visits and demonstrations.

  • Meetings, courses and conferences on renewable sources of energy and energy efficiency.

  • The Energy Farm informs about the use of bioenergy in cooperation with the Norwegian Bioenergy Association.
