The greenhouse landscape is one of the newest landscapes in the Netherlands. Due to the fact that the landscape exists out of build-up greenhouses, the landscape is criticized of its lacking of aesthetics, green and overview/orientation. Despite this critique, the landscape is valued as well for its technological level, its big scale and its...

In The Netherlands, the current heat energy system accounts for 44% of the primary energy usage and relies almost entirely on fossil fuels such as natural gas. To meet the Paris Climate Agreement goals, 4th Generation District Heating (4GDH) networks are expected as sustainable heat energy system solution. The concept relies on optimally...

The role of water storages at greenhouses will change in the future due to three trends in climate change, upscaling of greenhouses and changes in regulations. These three trends force the local water authority and the greenhouse sector to anticipate on future problems. First step in this process is to understand the hydrological response of...

The Airey building blocks in Amsterdam currently don’t meet regulations set for 2020 that state that buildings should operate in an energy neutral manner. The goal of this research is to establish whether addition of greenhouses can improve indoor thermal comfort and reduce total energy use in such a way that they contribute to energy neutrality...
