Despite agriculture being a major contributor of carbon dioxide, the industry has largely been left out of the EV revolution. But that is beginning to change. “Charging Ahead: Manufacturing the EV Future of Agriculture” looks at new innovations in EV technology that are helping farmers cut fuel costs, reduce oil dependency and improve their carbon footprint. Hosted by Monarch Tractor President and Tesla manufacturing pioneer, Mark Schwager, this session will focus on the development and manufacturing of EV machines that are leading farmers and the agriculture industry toward a more sustainable future.
If agriculture hopes to attain a sustainable future, reliance on fossil fuels must end. But that is easier said than done. Many of the traditional machines farmers use are gas powered, resulting in harmful emissions being released on the farm and beyond. New innovations in electrification, including advanced battery technologies, represent a greener path forward. The challenge is in developing and manufacturing battery-powered machines that fulfill the daily needs of farmers while offering economic value and also remain true to the tried-and-tested originals. Additionally, the machines themselves must be manufactured in such a way that their carbon footprint is not worse than the emissions themselves. Join Monarch Tractor President Mark Schwager, an EV manufacturing veteran who has led operations at Tesla and Toyota, for “Charging Ahead: Manufacturing the EV Future of Agriculture,” a discussion on how EV innovation in agriculture is addressing economics and sustainability without compromising one for the other.
