Eggs

Energy efficiency savings opportunities for layer producers are typically focused on shed lighting and cooling/ventilation. Layer sheds in temperate/warm climates don’t generally need much (if any) heating, as the birds produce enough body heat to keep the sheds warm in the cold winter months.

New lighting technologies, which can be purchased with assistance from Energy Saving Credits (ESCs) through the Energy Saving Scheme (ESS), can reduce electrical lighting costs while maintaining optimal light levels within laying sheds.

Shed roofs provide a good location for solar PV installations, and depending on the size of the farm, there may be the opportunity to explore the use of chicken effluent as a potential energy source.
