Energy management

Energy management in horticulture 

How do you limit energy consumption as a horticulture business to the absolute minimum? And how do you make the energy you still consume more sustainable? Energy management is an important topic for every business in every industry, including greenhouse horticulture. Or actually, particularly in greenhouse horticulture, because energy in the greenhouse is crucial for the growth and flowering of every crop. Effective energy management involves many smart sustainable solutions to reduce energy consumption, make it more sustainable and store it.

Stolze offers various solutions for efficient and sustainable energy management in greenhouses. As a specialist in the field of electrical and water technology, grow lights, automation and climate technology, we innovate continuously. We offer modern technology and high-tech systems.

LED lighting

By switching to a hybrid or full LED system, you can make substantial savings on the energy bill. This has everything to do with the higher efficiency in light output, the longer lifespan and the larger number of options for composing an optimal light recipe that LED offers.

Dimming of LED fixtures

Use smart lighting control for a significant reduction in energy costs. The new light control by Priva Connext links the LED system to your electricity management. The climate computer automatically adjusts the light levels based on the available sunlight.

Double climate screen

Screen systems are ideal for saving energy. Energy screens keep heat inside the greenhouse and let sunlight through. Energy savings are highest when using a double screen.

E-boiler

An e-boiler produces heat with electricity. This electric boiler has many advantages for growers, such as a large control range, low maintenance costs and fast and flexible switching to imbalance prices.

Dehumidification

Dry air heats up faster than humid air. That’s why the greenhouse must be well ventilated, especially if the screen remains closed more often. A dehumidification system removes moisture from the air without having to open the greenhouse.

Solar energy

Solar energy is a cost-effective, sustainable way to generate energy. The use of solar panels saves on energy costs and reduces dependence on traditional, expensive energy sources. 

Geothermal heat

One sustainable way of heating greenhouses is geothermal energy. This involves the use of geothermal heat as a heat source, instead of gas. There are various geothermal projects in the Netherlands in which geothermal heat is used for greenhouse horticulture. 

Residual heat

Residual heat from power plants, industry, data centres and biomass can also be very effective for use in the horticultural sector. Significant energy savings can be achieved by using this residual heat in greenhouses.  

“Energy management is about major, sometimes complex energy issues, but also about basic measures in the greenhouse that will quickly save energy. It doesn’t always have to be large and complex.”
