Goal 7. Affordable and clean energy
Goal 7 “Affordable and clean energy” is achieved within the project by using renewable energy sources. Application of green manures and cover crops allows for the use of solar energy not only during the growth of the main crop (an average of 120 days), but throughout the entire season (approximately 210 days). The crop residues remaining on the surface of the field to protect the soil from solar radiation.
In addition, wood and brushwood obtained from the clearing and trimming of shelterbelts serve as fuel to heat homes and infrastructure facilities, as well as raw materials to produce fuel pellets and briquettes. Therefore, the project facilitates this type of economic activity to promote it among the general public.
