A solar off-grid energy system
to power greenhouse-based horticultural projects
Why we do this
Agriculture will have to double food production by 2050 to feed 9 billion people with fewer resources and with less or no environmental damage.
The greenhouse (GH) industry has the potential to revolutionise the way we think about farming.
Due to the various energy demands of GH facilities, relying solely on the utility is often not possible and economically or environmentally ideal
How we do it
SOLHO proposes an innovative and fully off-grid energy system called SPRHOUT (Solar PoweRed Horticultural Off-grid UniT) that, using solar power and thanks to a thermal energy storage system, fulfils the needs of a Greenhouse based horticultural projects.
