  1. 1. Energy Analysis of the Closed Greenhouse Concept Towards a Sustainable Energy Pathway

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Amir Vadiee; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; thermal energy storage; closed greenhouse; energy analysis; energy management; SRA - Energy; SRA - Energi;

    Abstract : The closed greenhouse is an innovative concept in sustainable energy management. The closed greenhouse can be considered as a large commercial solar building. In principle, it is designed to maximize the utilization of solar energy through seasonal storage. In a fully closed greenhouse, there are not any ventilation windows. READ MORE
