Controlled environment agriculture facilities need to continue reducing energy consumption to remain competitive in the market and meet consumer expectations. New advances have been reported by researchers collaborating with commercial scale facilities, including the use of CO2 enrichment as low-energy alternative to using high light and fossil-fuel heating. An understanding of vapor pressure deficit has allowed growers to reduce air-conditioning cost of indoor farms by growing at higher temperatures. Staggering cropping schedules and new smart lighting controls will be discussed, as well as new research on maintaining the plant balances using energy and shade curtains in the greenhouse. Attendees will gain an understanding of methods they can use right now and equipment or software to consider for their next upgrade.
