Greenhouse climate and energy are inextricably linked. Almost every change in greenhouse climate has consequences for energy consumption, and vice versa. What climate do you need in your greenhouse for the product you want to produce? And how are you going to generate this energy, in the most efficient way possible?


Using our own Certhon simulation software, we calculate growing concepts and can accurately predict in advance the effect of interventions in climate and energy consumption on the crop. We connect and renovate existing installations and develop new systems that meet tomorrow’s requirements. Heat pumps, solar panels, geothermal heat and well systems: we develop it ourselves.

Our installations and systems

Above and underground storage (CHP)

Above- and underground thermal storage (CHP) systems are widely used in greenhouses to save energy and improve productivity. In an ATES system, heat is stored in the summer, when greenhouse temperatures are high, and then used to heat the greenhouse in the winter. Similarly, cold is stored in the winter and used to cool the greenhouse in the summer. As a result, less energy is used to keep the greenhouse at the desired temperature, saving costs and reducing environmental impact.

Heat pump (with low and high-quality heat)

A heat pump can be used to extract heat from the outside air or from the ground and use this heat to heat the greenhouse. The type of heat pump used depends on the specific needs of the greenhouse. For example, a high-quality heat pump can produce heat up to 85°C, while a low-temperature heat pump produces heat to about 40-50°C. The advantage of a heat pump is that it is a very efficient way to generate heat because it can produce more heat than the amount of energy needed to run it. In addition, a heat pump can also help regulate humidity in the greenhouse, which can contribute to healthy crop growth.


In greenhouses, the hot water produced by the CHP is used to heat the greenhouse and provide the plants with the heat they need. This is an efficient way of heating because the heat is used directly where it is needed, unlike traditional heating methods where heat is lost during transport through pipes. In addition, the electricity produced can be used to power the greenhouse, reducing dependence on the energy grid. Surplus electricity can be fed back into the grid, which can result in savings on energy bills.


A boiler provides hot water and steam needed to heat greenhouses and grow crops. Traditional boilers usually run on gas or oil, but there are also electric boilers available that run on electricity. Electric boilers are generally more expensive to operate than gas or oil-fired boilers because of the higher cost of electricity. However, it can be cost-effective to use an electric boiler in situations where the price of gas or oil is high, or when there is no access to gas or oil fuel.
