Richtinggevende beelden voor klimaat neutrale glastuinbouw

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


With financial support of the Dutch ministry of EZ and Dutch horticulture product board PT, Wageningen UR Greenhouse Horticulture designed and simulated concepts with savings of 70% on thermal energy in the greenhouse cultivation of tomatoes, and 50% on electricity for artificial light in the greenhouse cultivation of roses. The tomato concept is based on prototypes “VenLow Energy Greenhouse” and “Next Generation Semiclosed Greenhouse”, and is able to produce tomatoes with 12 m3*m-2*year-1 of natural gas equivalents. Options for energy savings on electricity for assimilation lighting for roses cv. ‘Red Naomi!’ were developed regarding a roadmap with five steps. With significantly less hours of artificial lighting, more solar radiation by using less screens during day time, 3-day light integration and application of diffuse glass with AR coating and LED lights, 50% saving on energy for lighting seems possible without concessions to production. However this system seems not economic feasible yet.
