Farmer and speaker Hans Arild Grøndalen, Mayor of Råde and Head of Klima Østfold Rene Rafshol and participant Ivar Grimstad
The conference on June 6th created a lot of interest in Østfold and adjacent communities.
Close to a 100 participants spent the day learning about the different solar solutions that can be installed on larger buildings with a main focus on the agricultural sector.
The participants were introduced to different solar technologies, regulations, leasing systems, investment analyses and potential state support/funding. Everybody enjoyed the inspiring speech provided by a local farmer, who is leading the transition to a green economy in every aspect of his agriculture business.
The next focus for the Coben project in Østfold is to offer workshops and in-depth studies to local farmers interested in investing in different types of fossile-free energy alternatives.
