The energy and food systems are interrelated. On the one hand, about 30% of the world's energy is consumed within agri-food systems, mainly in the post-harvest stage, when fossil fuels are used. On the other hand, energy is also responsible for a third of greenhouse gas emissions in these systems. Both must be transformed to meet the current and future demand for food and energy in a fair, environmentally sustainable, and inclusive manner, directed towards the co-production of these resources (International Renewable Energy Agency- IRENA and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations- FAO, 2021; FAO, 2011).
