Innovative Energy Efficient Greenhouses

Innovative energy efficient greenhouses

Through the use of excess heat, we want to create conditions for sustainable and competitive greenhouse cultivation in Sweden by using low-temperature heat from other businesses to a greater extent. The project is carried out in collaboration with leading partners in the area and where RISE is the coordinator.

Low-temperature grade energies are today a low-utilized resource in society despite a large supply. In this project, greenhouses will be studied, as they need a lot of energy and have large heat-transferring surfaces, which makes the use of thermal energy sources with low temperatures interesting. The purpose of the project is to create conditions for sustainable and competitive greenhouse cultivation in Sweden through synergies between different industries and technologies. As a facilitator, a new concept is proposed, which is being developed for greenhouse cultivation, where energy and cultivation efficiency interact. By evaluating the concept, the project intends to answer questions about how energy-efficient technology for greenhouses can reduce energy needs, and use low-temperature energy sources, in combination with heat recovery, while controlling the climate in the greenhouse to improve cultivation capacity and CO2 fertilization.
