People also found it interesting to see what steps others had already taken in energy saving. Now the level of energy prices was the reason for this topic, but of course the footprint / CO2 reduction is also an item in itself. There are also questions about the nutritional effects of energy saving and the consequences for animal health.
Within the continents there seem to be large differences in energy consumption in animal feed production. There are differences of 45-85% in the efficiency (ratio of energy consumption and capacity) of the plant. What can we learn from that?
Finally, it became clear that there is a challenge to optimize quality requirements and efficient energy use: to measure is to know!
In short, we look back on a very successful Energy Day that has provided enough inspiration for a follow-up next year!
