Precision irrigation that reduces energy consumption

  1. 1. WATER INNOVATION: BRIDGING GAPS, CREATING OPPORTUNITIES 27 AND 28 SEPTEMBER 2017 ALFÂNDEGA PORTO CONGRESS CENTRE WATER AND THE CIRCULAR ECONOMY, PART 2 – AGRICULTURE PRECISION IRRIGATION THAT REDUCES ENERGY CONSUMPTION LUIS NARVARTE POLYTECHNIC UNIVERSITY OF MADRID VALENTIN OPFERMANN COPA-COGECA ADRIANO BATTILANI CANALE EMILIANO ROMAGNOLO
  2. 2. A. Battilani and V. Opfermann AG112 - Water & Irrigated agriculture Resilient Europe Precision irrigation that reduces energy consumption
  3. 3. Coupling Drip Irrigation, Sensors and effective Irrigation Scheduling and Strategies is regarded as the best precision irrigation. Precision Irrigation: a new idea, indeed !! Precision Irrigation is deemed the best solution to minimize adverse environmental impacts. Precision Irrigation is able to significantly reduce agricultural water and energy uses. A. Battilani and V. Opfermann, Porto 28 September 2017
  4. 4. EXPECTATIONS WATER SAVINGS OF ABOUT 20%; HIGHER WATER PRODUCTIVITY HIGHER ECONOMIC WATER PRODUCTIVITY; HIGHER YIELD (quantity and/or quality). MINIMIZE ADVERSE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS IMPROVE WATER GOVERNANCE THROUGH BETTER MANAGEMENT OF THE RESOURCE BASE; LOWER CARBON AND WATER FOOTPRINT ENERGY SAVINGS OF ABOUT 20% ENERGY PEAK-LOAD AND COSTS REDUCTION (Automated PI with Time-of-Use (TOU) Rate Control and Automated Demand Response (AutoDR)
  5. 5. IRRIGATION WATER DELIVERY OPTIMAL ENERGY MANAGEMENT Energy comes to about 40% of the total water costs in agriculture Precision Irrigation: direct energy savings Optimizing Irrigation scheduling, shifting and pressure make possible to save up to 50% of energy
  6. 6. EMBODIED ENERGY Applying precision irrigation on 1.5 - 2.0 ha can save the energy used by Italian or Spanish Householder in one year Precision Irrigation: indirect energy savings Water 1000 kWh Fertilizers 1120 kWh Farming Oper.1 kWh Agrochemicals 1 kWh
