Renewable energy has come into its own in recent years, with various government incentives like Feed-in Tariffs (FiTs) and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) encouraging uptake. In this section, we discuss the technologies solar PV, wind power, biomass, anaerobic digestion and heat pumps.
Some of the key issues greenhouses growers face with renewable energy at the moment are:
- The integration of biomass boilers and the implications on their existing system
- Heat stores
- Flue gas emissions
- CO2 recovery
