Optimise energy consumption
If you are looking to optimise energy consumption for your indoor farm, there are a few key factors to keep in mind. First, it is important to understand your environment and climate so that you can make informed decisions about your design.
For example, if you are in a climate where free cooling is an option, you could save up to 85% on your cooling and drying capacity by using this method instead of relying solely on mechanical cooling.
Improve airflow around your crop
In addition to considering your environment, it is also essential to understand the needs of your crop. By designing an airflow system that promotes better growth and uniformity, you can increase your yield and reduce energy consumption.
A well-designed system can also allow for higher temperatures and humidity, which in turn can help you use more free cooling and lower your refrigeration energy needs.
To automate and optimise your indoor farm's climate, there are many different options available. Climate computers, sensors, and software can help you create and control an ideal climate, measure relevant parameters, and predict future needs.
Our company is an official supplier of several top brands in this area, including Hoogendoorn, SERCOM, and Ridder. We develop our own software called Polariks, which collects all available data to perform analyses, predictions, performance management, and much more.
