You can now simulate the inner climate and energy consumption of your greenhouse project in 2030, 2040 and 2050 all over the world.
"Due to climate change, climate management of a greenhouse is more difficult in the summer, heating consumption are lower and cooling consumption are higher," says Vincent Stauffer of Hortinergy. "The situation is going to increase in the coming years, while a greenhouse project is an investment over 20 to 30 years. So when you design your greenhouse project, it may be relevant to include the future climate and its changes to make sure you make the right decision."
The team of Hortinergy answered to this with a new module for their online modelling software allowing to calculate the energy consumption in greenhouses anywhere worldwide. The module simulates different IPCC scenarios for the years 2030/2040/2050 and 2100 in collaboration with Meteonorm. "This means that you can simulate the climate of your greenhouse and its energy consumption at these horizons."
