Symposium on Greenhouse Energy Simulation Engineering Department, Cambridge University, Trumpington Street, Cambridge, CB2 1PZ , UK

The event is open and free to attend, but registration is required. Please RSVP by emailing to Ms. Lorna Everett-Walters (lje31@cam.ac.uk) or at http://cam-ges.eventbrite.com/ This one day symposium brings together researchers from both academia and industry working on the design and simulation of greenhouse technologies for plant cultivation. Greenhouse simulation differs from traditional energy simulation of buildings in the inclusion of transpiration heat flow – namely, the flux of water through the surface of a leaf to allow the plants to maintain optimum water content. Indeed, transpiration is the most important mechanism (as compared to radiation and convection) by which plants maintain ‘comfort’ conditions. This symposium will feature recent work in this area, including a new project at U. of Cambridge on the integration of greenhouse simulators with energy simulation models of traditional buildings. It will be relevant for students and researchers interested in the design of climate controlled greenhouses and in their integration within urban environments.
