It is unavoidable that in the long run the fuel reserves, currently being used so intensively, will be exhausted. Therefore industries will have to employ alternative energies. Major developments in this field will, however, take a long time to reach a commercially feasible level. However, there have been recent developments that indicate a growing trend towards the use of renewable energies for its potential to contribute to reductions in GHG emissions, electricity generation and application in process heating. Dairies have considerable advantages in that as they are high energy users with a relatively constant demand for electricity and heat throughout the year. Wind energy and geothermal energy are in general only suitable as a supplement to a collective supply, which is an electricity grid or a district heating system. The conditions and the costs are often too prohibitive for individual dairies to even consider using them as alternative energies. More adaptable to the dairy is the use of solar energy and biomass energy which can be effectively and directly utilized both as alternatives and supplements to the existing energy supply.
