A greenhouse that uses mostly solar energy for its energy needs.
AGRIMEC is realizing a system of extraction and accumulation of excess energy available in the greenhouse. The original content of the project lies in the idea of using renewable energy from the sun present in the greenhouse, energy that is partly expelled in traditional greenhouses or simply not used by letting this will raise the internal temperature above the necessary. The challenge is this: instead of evacuating hot air, the water becomes hot to remove temporarily from the greenhouse, chilling the atmosphere during the hours of sun and this energy in accumulating a layer of soil able to retain this heat and make available at a later time when required.
