In 2010, “la Bellotta” Farm was chosen by New Holland Agriculture to become the first pilot Energy Independent Farm equipped with New Holland NH2™ tractor. The Energy Independent Farm concept centers on the capacity of farms to produce electrical energy from renewable sources with low environmental impact, storing it in the form of hydrogen and reusing it easily. The highly innovative content of the project (from a technological, energy and environmental standpoint, as well as its full compliance with EU targets for renewable energy), has earned it a place among the top projects in the Industria 2015 program "New technologies for Made in Italy”, sponsored by the Italian Ministry for Economic Development. Practical trials with the first of New Holland’s second-generation NH2™ tractors will begin at La Bellotta Farm in 2012.
