Reduced energy use in the NSR horticultural greenhouse industry (GreenGrowing)
Start date: Sep 30, 2011, End date: Jun 29, 2015 PROJECT  FINISHED 

GreenGrowing will strengthen the innovation capacity and competitiveness in the NSR horticultural greenhouse industry and lead to at least a 10% reduction of CO2 emissions. The project will combine a better climate control in the greenhouses, an improved use of novel greenhouse techniques and the use of climate tolerant plant types with ICT tools. Supported by intensive information strategies at the business level GreenGrowing will deliver cost savings and ensure sustainable production. The project will create transnational networks linking SMEs, grower organizations and political bodies to transfer innovation and deliver a lasting impact. Achievements: • Strategies to increase the energy efficiency in greenhouses• Identification of plant material with increased tolerance to stress• Exemplary 'model greenhouses' from public or private initiatives as demonstration for growers• Delivery of an ICT system/module that will translate production and growth models into flexible energy demand curves enabling a flexible and smart use of energy• ICT system for energy use evaluation• ICT decision support platform with information on energy saving methods and technologies• Long lasting transnational network of public bodies
