Special Session VII

Technology and Application of Agricultural Energy Internet

The modern agricultural production mode has brought profound changes to the energy consumption characteristics of agriculture and rural areas. This change has given rise to the demand for new technology development in various aspects of the rural energy system, including sources, networks, and loads, promoting the deep integration of modern agriculture and energy across different fields. The theory of agricultural energy internet has distinct interdisciplinary characteristics, aiming to promote cross-disciplinary collaboration, interdisciplinary intersection, and cross-border integration development through cross-disciplinary research on agriculture and energy, in order to better serve the implementation of the national rural revitalization strategy. This special session aims to promote the deep integration of energy and agriculture, promote the coordinated development of agricultural production and energy supply, improve agricultural energy utilization efficiency and economic benefits, and promote sustainable energy development in rural areas.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Design and optimization of agricultural energy systems
• Development and utilization of renewable energy in rural areas
Collaborative management of agricultural production and energy supply
Intelligent and digital application of agricultural energy systems
• Research on the correlation between agricultural energy systems and climate change
Assessment of economic, environmental, and social benefits of agricultural energy systems
Integrated management and decision support of agricultural production and energy systems
Integration and evelopment of agricultural energy systems and rural communities
