Simulate online your project with a greenhouse design software

A greenhouse simulation software helps you to design an energy efficient greenhouse with an optimal inner climate.

You can simulate online any horticultural greenhouse project all over the world with our greenhouse design software:

  • the inner climate on an hourly basis during a typical year,
  • the energy consumption : heating, dehumidification, lighting, cooling…

Hortinergy is an online software. You can choose your offer, create an account and start your project.

Design your project

Graph greenhouse design software
You can, with this greenhouse simulation software:

  • Model the inner climate (temperature, humidity) like a virtual greenhouse.
  • Calculate energy consumption and expenditures: heating, cooling, lighting, dehumidification…
  • The model includes specific greenhouse parameters: light transmission simulation, crop transpiration, equipment, heating system, climate settings…
  • Hortinergy integrates modern technologies such as semiclosed greenhouse, closed greenhouse, active ventilation, assimilation lighting
  • You can model a new project as well as an existing greenhouse.

Outputs of the greenhouse simulator

  • Greenhouse energy consumption for heating, dehumidification and cooling on an hourly, daily, monthly and yearly basis
  • Modelling of the indoor climate (temperature, humidity) on an hourly basis like a virtual greenhouse,
  • Primary and secondary heating system consumption and heat load-duration curve
  • Equipment sizing
  • Comparison of solutions (annual, monthly basis)

Different steps in the greenhouse simulation software

The algorithms of the greenhouse calculator are very demanding. Therefore our servers need approximately 20 minutes to the perform calculation to simulate your greenhouse. Then you can upload the reports.

Climate modelling and energy consumption calculations are performed using proven algorithms. The 10% accuracy has been validated by measurement campaigns at CTIFL (French Interprofessional Technical Centre for Fruit and Vegetables); Astredhor (Horticultural institute of technology),and Wageningen University (WUR) in Mediterranean, ocean and semi-continental climates in conventional and semi-closed greenhouses.

Hortinergy, our greenhouse simulation software, has been developed by Agrithermic in partnership with the CTIFL (French Interprofessional Technical Centre for Fruits and Vegetables) and the Astredhor (Horticultural institute of technology), the Agrocampus Ouest and the agricultural high school of La Cote saint André (CFPPA).

What happens to my data in the greenhouse design software?

You are the owner of your data in all circumstances. We only use your data to simulate your greenhouse project. They are not shared with third parties or reused in our calculations or for any other purpose.

Your data are stored for 1 year in a secured server of the greenhouse design software then they are deleted. You keep control on it: if you ask for it we can delete all your data anytime.
