Farming Concept Study
Dromana Climate Smart Farm
80kms South East of the Melbourne CBD is a parcel of land that has been leased by Volt Farmer; an organisation that is dedicated to demonstrating techniques of carbon farming and land regeneration, sustainable agriculture, and renewable energy production.
To complete the full-cycle benefit of the project and it's demonstration potential, a 290kW electrolyser, storage and fuel cell solution was designed to utilise the solar energy and generate enough hydrogen to support power for 4 vertical farms running 24/7/365, without needing to access grid energy. This is to demonstrate how agriculture can become completely independent of the traditional grid energy; there is even possibility to upsize the electrolyser and produce hydrogen fuel for mobility.
