The AgroFossilFree project promotes fossil-energy-free technologies and strategies (FEFTS) in the agricultural sector by integrating various stakeholder initiatives and disseminating knowledge on FEFTS in agriculture. Applications boosting RES integration in important agricultural sectors, notably solar technology, are given considerable attention. The project's main goal is to create a platform where farmers, advisors, academics, business partners, and other stakeholders may discover pertinent information about FEFTS in agriculture. The AgroFossilFree initiative works to reduce the use of fossil fuels in all aspects of farming, which supports the EU Green Deal and Farm to Fork strategies. By encouraging the productive sharing of novel technologies, it helps to bridge the gap between the available FEFTS and common agricultural practices throughout the EU. By facilitating the effective flow of innovative information and ideas amongst stakeholders, it contributes to close the gap between the available FEFTS and common EU agricultural practices, thus European agriculture could become more environmentally, socioeconomically, and energetically sustainable. The European agricultural sector can support and abide by policies to reduce the use of fossil energy, the relevant legal and regulatory frameworks, and sustainable food production practices with the help of the knowledge that is gathered, classified, and presented to actors in the agricultural field. This article provides an update on the European Commission founded AgroFossilFree project.
