Energy efficiency

 

Introduction

This section examines how to make the food system more energy efficient, given a very negative input - output ratio, and heavy dependence on fossil fuels.  It also examines energy generation along the supply chain.  Energy projects on agricultural land that are not targeted for on-farm use are discussed under Goal 5, Agricultural Land Protection.  Energy from food waste projects are also discussed under Goal 5, Reducing food waste.  Large biofuel initiatives that use agricultural crops as feedstock are discussed under Goal 5 Sustainable Bioproducts and also Goal 5 Sustainable Transportation.
