  • Researching Sustainable Energy Topics
    important role for Southern Region SARE consistent with the organization s core values is to ask 1 How sustainable are current biofuels efforts And 2 How can SARE contribute to the vision and development of a truly sustainable bioenergy future For example how will the increased number of Southern farmland acres being planted in grain for the production of fuel impact hay supplies conservation reserve acres cost of livestock feed etc Could SARE research answer some of those questions in a timely manner Strategies The Southern Region Sustainable Agricultural Research and Education S SARE Administrative Council AC will support energy use efficiency including all aspects of energy conservation strive to help identify bioenergy ideas and technologies that are truly sustainable and actively participate in balanced discussions regarding the sustainability of current bioenergy investments We will direct efforts through the Professional Development Program PDP Research Education R E grants and other education and outreach activities to be sure that all relevant data are examined all aspects of sustainability are being debated and that all issues of sustainability are included in the decision making process We need to research new crops alternative feedstocks for biofuels not just for higher yield to increase the potential amount of biofuels but also to avoid introducing another invasive species such as Chinese tallow Consideration also needs to be given to water requirements of such feedstocks Partnerships with other SARE regions agencies e g Environmental Protection Agency Department of Energy Natural Resources and Conservation Service and Agriculture Research Service institutions Land Grant and other colleges and universities non governmental organizations NGOs state and local economic development agencies and state agriculture and natural resource departments must be investigated to ensure issues of sustainability e g clean water soil and air quality and rural communities are being fully considered Time is of the essence so action should commence immediately but in a coordinated and focused manner initially emphasizing investments in education S SARE must ask questions that may be overlooked or even discounted in the rush to develop new technologies and management strategies to support renewable bioenergy production For example how can farmers and ranchers Develop agricultural resources for energy production in a sustainable manner Capitalize on bioenergy opportunities while protecting soil and water quality Establish partnerships with local businesses to ensure that rural communities realize benefits from energy development projects One consideration that is fundamental is the location size and capability of processing facilities Are these to be a few large scale facilities where crops would need to be transported to Or should there be smaller and more plentiful facilities that can be local in nature and reduce transportation costs at the risk of local growing conditions An economic analysis is needed for this basic issue This question in turn leads to the nature and scope of production facilities The production infrastructure needs to be studied and detailed for efficiency S SARE Themes In an effort to expand the focus in bioenergy beyond corn and soybean based ethanol
