RES4LIVE: Energy Smart Livestock Farming towards Zero Fossil Fuel Consumption
Plegma Labs is thrilled to announce our participation in RES4LIVE! The strategic objective of this H2020 Innovation action is to develop and bring into the market integrated, cost-effective and case-sensitive RES solutions towards achieving fossil-free livestock farming. To that end, RES4LIVE will adapt and test promising RES technologies in energy-intensive livestock farming (swine, dairy and poultry) for greatly reducing the fossil energy that is the main source to cover the energy demand. Dedicated, optimal designs combined with energy efficiency and other solutions will be demonstrated in four pilot farms in Belgium, Italy, Germany and Greece and evaluated technically, economically and environmentally.
PLEGMA develops a local gateway and collect sensor measurements and provides a cloud-based solution for data visualization and environmental monitoring. PLEGMA also develops the smart control and automation components for the RES4LIVE project on the project pilots to optimize the animals’ thermal comfort by controlling heating-cooling and ventilation units and possibly other equipment.
