The SARE program (Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture has a site dedicated to greenhouse energy efficiency.

 

Their ‘Greenhouse Energy Conservation Strategies and Alternative Fuels’ site (located here) includes curriculum materials and resource lists, as well as presentations and pdf bulletins available on topics such as biomass energy heating, and using curtains.

They also offer a Greenhouse Energy Self Assessment tool. “This tool will examine heaters and boilers, thermal curtains and glazing as potential energy saving options for your greenhouses.”
