Green Energy in Mariculture Survey
The Green Energy in Mariculture (GEM) project aims to help farmers and processors maximize energy efficiency and renewable energy while minimizing dependence on fossil fuels. The project has three phases: a baseline study to quantify current energy use patterns, a green energy plan to guide investment as the industry grows, and a best practices guide for future energy audits and efficiency work. GEM will develop the baseline energy use profile by working with farmers and processors to measure energy use and determining patterns and trends in energy use. Farmers and processors that participate in the project will receive a stipend (of $800) as well as a report specific to their operation. To read more, click here.
