Monitoring Energiebesparing door Het Nieuwe Telen en Energie-innovaties

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

In recent years, new technologies and cultivation methods have been developed to contribute to an energyefficient
greenhouse horticulture sector. In the monitoring project, the performance of these systems has been
assessed objectively by comparing similar greenhouses or greenhouse compartments with and without these
techniques. Due to the long-term character of the project, a learning process of growers in the application of
these systems can now be studied. For those cases, some growers have been followed for successive years.
The output of the monitoring project consists of reports and a large number of blogs, vlogs, articles in growermagazines
and presentations horticultural events.
This document provides a general review of the results from the entire project and draws general conclusions.
For detailed information on the different systems, reference is made to specific outputs of the project.
The energy savings potential of Next Generation Greenhouse Cultivation and Energy Innovations proves to be
great. The application of different options, however, depends strongly on the economic conditions and the results
depend also on the skills, experience and focus of the growers in managing their greenhouse climate.
