The aim of the current multidisciplinary research project is to control and optimize the growing conditions of agricultural products, to minimize the energy consumption and to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions.
The aim of the project is to increase plant productivity by optimizing the environmental conditions in the greenhouse. Furthermore, the project will contribute to increasing sustainability by reducing the energy usage. Ultimately, the accumulated knowledge will be shared among relevant parties: students, scientists, farmers, associations and governmental bodies.
ClimaGreen will contribute towards a more energy efficient and greener operation of greenhouses, in general, while improving overall productivity by increasing the growth of plants and vegetables. An integrated part of the project will be investigating the seasonal storage of thermal energy to allow the use of the summer excess heat in the winter.
