Implementation of intelligent and sustainable Greenhouse Unit with application of innovative information and control technologies
The object of the project SmartGreen is the design, development, construction and monitoring of a Greenhouse Unit in which innovative technological solutions will be integrated and demonstrated in the field of smart greenhouse agriculture and especially in the sectors: i. of structural stability, ii. energy management and efficiency, iii. rational management and saving of resources (water, fertilizers and chemicals), iv. integration of advanced IoT technologies of measurement-recording-management of data through advanced computer applications, v. provision of integrated services after the installation.
IntegrAted SolutioNs for the DecarbOnization and Smartification of Islands
Home to more than 2 200 inhabited islands, the EU is committed to facilitating their clean energy transition. A long-term framework can ensure the islands are able to generate their own sustainable, low-cost energy. The EU-funded IANOS project is working in this direction starting from the islands of Terceira (Azores), Ameland (Netherlands), Lampedusa (Italy), Bora Bora (France) and Nisyros (Greece). Bringing together 34 experienced partners from nine European countries, the project will adopt an island energy transition strategy focussed on energy efficiency, decarbonisation through electrification and support from carbon-neutral fuels, and the empowerment of local energy communities. The findings will help to significantly reduce fossil fuel consumption, bringing the EU one step closer to reaching its climate-neutral goals.
