URESA-use of renewable energy sources in vocational training in agriculture

The aim of the URESA project is to promote renewable energy sources (RES), such as wind power, energy from photovoltaic sources, energy from biomass, energy from biogas or geothermal energy.
The project also aims to present renewable energy sources as a means to transform the profile of households from rural areas and to improve the professional skills of people living in the countryside.

There are many different levels of renewable energy sources in rural areas in Europe. Western European countries in this area are much more developed than Eastern European countries. The theme of agricultural res is relatively new in the partner countries of the URESA project. On the basis of analyses carried out by the ARID Association and the European organisation of young Farmers CEJA, there is considerable interest among farmers in small installations producing renewable energy.  The document entitled “Polish energy policy until 2030” implies that up to 2020 Each municipality will create res installations. It is therefore necessary, first of all, to support educational measures aimed at disseminating knowledge on renewable energy sources in agriculture. A similar situation as in Poland takes place in the partner countries of the project, it is in Turkey, Slovakia and Bulgaria. The project is intended for farmers and rural residents. The need for education in renewable energy sources, apart from national documents, is also presented through EU Regulation No 2001/77/EC and 2009/28/EC.
