Energy-saving and climate control in greenhouses with concertina-shaped screen, made of metallized complex film
The demonstration project EE 405-87 NL deals wth energy savings and climate control in a greenhouse by means of a concertina-shaped screen. The screen has a closed metallised structure and is operated by a computer controlled system, driven by electronically controlled motors. It has been mounted in a 9600 m2 chrysanthemum nursery and provides 13 hours darkness a day, all year round. It can be used in all types of greenhouses and for all kinds of cultivation. Its use in horizontal energy and climate control on a large scale is possible, providing that the computer program, the driving system and the measurement of atmospheric humidity are adapted.
