The state of global agriculture is at a crossroads between climate change, land and water resources, and rising populations. is unsustainable. When combined with the effects of climate change, this poses an increasing challenge to our ability to feed ourselves.
Energy is the elephant in the room.
Agriculture and energy are inextricably linked, and until energy for farming becomes completely renewable, agriculture will continue to be a leading cause of climate change, part of the problem rather than the solution.
Controlled Environment Agriculture companies rely on enormous amounts of grid energy from varying percentages of renewable and non-renewable sources. The reliance on grid power not only contributes to carbon in the atmosphere, but also keeps price-of-goods high and margins low.
ESG’s solution is responsible, radical, renewable, and resilient.
To change agriculture, to change how other industries are powered, ESG has created a paradigm shift: we identify sources of energy that are cost effective, do not pollute, nor have a negative impact on the environment.
What if waste could be used as a source of renewable energy?
ESG designed a system on a circular model, focused on building a network of facilities consisting of CEA technology with on-site renewable energy and Food-Energy-Waste (FEW) systems, thereby eliminating 1/3 of the cost of food spent on energy.
