The greenhouse cultivation system in European countries represents one of the mostenergy-intensive sectors in the agriculture and agro-industry sector. In this regard,renewable energies represent an innovative solution to reduce energy costs and environmentalimpacts. Both, the energy demands and the economic aspects are analyzedwith regard to the main energy users, i.e.: heating and cooling systems, lightingand pumping for irrigation. This work considers the use of solar photovoltaic andthermal energy. The use of semi-closed greenhouses is also considered.
