EnergySource Innovation Stream with Crop One: Advanced, Sustainable, and Local Agriculture

Please join the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center for the next episode of EnergySource Innovation Stream. This series highlights energy innovations with the potential to reshape the global energy system through discussions with the companies and individuals working diligently to enable those innovations to impact and accelerate the energy transition. On Tuesday, September 6 from 2:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. ET, the Global Energy Center, in partnership with the Agriculture Innovation Mission for Climate (AIM for Climate), will host Deane Falcone, chief scientific officer at Crop One, to discuss the company’s approach to sustainable vertical farming. Andrea Clabough, nonresident fellow at the Atlantic Council Global Energy Center, will moderate the discussion.

The agricultural sector is in the midst of a reckoning. Access to commodity grains and fertilizer precursors is controlled by a few major producers, linking farming to global geopolitics and conflict. And the sector also must contend with its climate impact and land usage, along with the inexorable rise of the world’s population.

Crop One is a vertical sustainable farming company committed to cleaning up and localizing agriculture. Using groundbreaking technology and high proportions of renewable energy to power operations, Crop One aims to significantly lower its environmental impact. Its model is less resource-intensive, less land-intensive, and less emissions-intensive.

Crop One is an Innovation Sprint Partner with AIM for Climate, a joint initiative by the United States and the United Arab Emirates. AIM for Climate seeks to address climate change and global hunger by uniting participants to significantly increase investment in, and other support for, climate-smart agriculture and food systems innovation over five years (2021 – 2025).
