Current energy conservation practices in the USA

Current energy conservation practices in the USA

Acta Horticulturae ( 257): 31-40

Issues involved in energy conservation in greenhouses include management decisions regarding crop selection for lower night time temp., reglazing/recladding with different materials, choice of fuel; maintenance of boilers and heaters, heat delivery systems, and the glazing system; mechanization in terms of movable benches, overhead transport; underfloor heating systems using waste heat from power stations or solar heated water; installation of energy saving thermal screens or blankets and use of computers and sensors for environmental control.
