Renewable Energy for Heat & Power Generation and Energy Storage in Greenhouses

Research output: NRELBrochure


Supporting widespread growth of the agricultural greenhouse industry requires innovative solutions to meet the unique energy challenges and demands of each farm with sustainable and cost-effective strategies and technologies. This study examines renewable energy for heat and power generation and storage at four greenhouses located in Colorado. Results outline key considerations for energy demand characteristics and the renewable energy technologies and strategies available to meet energy needs more sustainably, reliably, and economically and are broadly applicable to greenhouses across the world.
