Greenhouse applications

The benefits of integrating cogeneration into greenhouses. The example of growing cannabis for medical use

John Van Der Wilk - Global Key Account Executive, PRIVA

The advantage of having a cogeneration system in greenhouses is the ability to have a combined supply of electricity, heat and CO2 for cultivation, as well as to be able to turn heat into cold air if needed. In countries that allow the cultivation of cannabis in greenhouses for medical purposes, cogeneration becomes a key ally as growing this plant requires a great deal of energy and the ability to self-produce it significantly reduces the producer’s operating costs.
