Clean Energy Tech Talk: A Shifting Energy Future for Agriculture

Deploying a renewable energy project can have a lot of moving parts, and on Tuesday, September 26, Alta Energy will help you navigate through the complexity. Join us for our monthly Tech Talk, where Aaron Enz, CEO of Alta Energy, will discuss current and future clean energy opportunities for the fresh produce industry. The webinar will also cover the benefits, challenges and considerations for effective deployment and utilization of clean energy solutions.

While labor and water inputs remain the most challenging issues for most grower, shippers and processors, energy represents an area where fresh produce industry companies can positively impact their operations. The growing adoption rate of renewable energy is being driven by the improved cost viability and performance of clean energy solutions, sustainability requirements of produce customers and regulatory support and incentives.

Alta Energy, one of 47 agtech startups housed in the WG Center for Innovation & Technology, analyzes and assesses companies’ renewable energy and sustainability needs based on their unique goals. With the startup’s comprehensive analytics, clients can easily see where, when and how to deploy renewable energy at various locations across their organization. Then, to efficiently deploy projects, Alta Energy delivers competitive proposals from pre-qualified vendors – allowing clients to choose the best solution.

Tech Talks, which are offered at no cost, was launched in March 2016 to introduce WG members, potential stakeholders and the community to the latest innovations. Now, the Center has revamped the Tech Talk format to be a more collaborative forum between innovators, growers, investors and stakeholders.
