This project aims to improve Iceland's greenhouse farming energy efficiency. To achieve this, the project will first map the economic feasibility of modern indoor farming practices. Then it will investigate innovative lighting technologies, greenhouse designs and the implementation of new energy generation and heat transfer methods. Finally, the partners' long term vision is to improve the economic and environmental conditions for vegetable greenhouse farming in Iceland.

Duration: 2018- 2021
