Welcome to SMARTGREEN's webspace. SMARTGREEN is a project co-funded by the North Sea Region Programme 2014 - 2020.

SMARTGREEN puts the spotlight on reducing energy consumption in greenhouse production of fruit, vegetables and ornamental plants in the North Sea Region without compromising quality.

It might be that fruit, vegetables and ornamental plants are green – but production of them is not always as green as you could wish for. In North Europe, a great deal of energy is used for lighting, heating and climate control in greenhouses.

This will be improved with the aid of a new project in the North Sea Region that focuses on reducing energy consumption and improving climate control. SmartGreen collaborate with growers in the various countries around the North  Sea to combine research and experiments for the improvement of energy efficiency and reduction of energy consumption while maintaining product quality.
