Funding from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to study greenhouse use in Northern Canada has just been awarded. A total of 16 proposals were received.

Greenhouse operators in BC are among those who are closely watching what the present government in that province will do with the carbon tax. It has resulted in recent fuel hikes.

A new 30 million Euro greenhouse project in western Ukraine will be expanded to 40 hectares in coming years.

A pilot project at a commercial greenhouse in Ohio is using several innovative ways to achieve energy self-sufficiency.

Greenhouse vegetable and floriculture growers in British Columbia have recently received some relief from the province’s carbon tax.
With last week’s release of weak job numbers in the US, all eyes are the Federal Reserves’ meeting this week. What is decided at this meeting will affect Canadian greenhouse operators in a few ways, says 360 Energy's Lisa Brodeur.

If you’re a regular Energy Edge reader, you know that managing energy is an ongoing process. “Those who look at their energy issues only once a year are typically paying 5 to 25 per cent more than they need to,” says 360 Energy’s Lisa Brodeur. 

The recent injection of 20 Bcf (billion cubic feet) of natural gas into storage continues to show that the supply/demand ratio is out of balance – often a signal for a price shift, says Michelle Vieira, sales, operations and member relations manager at Guelph, Ontario-based Ag Energy Co-Operative.

One of two renewable energy projects in BC being funded by the Governments of BC and Canada will provide green power to greenhouses.

As more landfills look for ways to reduce the amount of garbage that is being accumulated, we are seeing more electricity being generated from landfill biogas, says 360 Energy's Lisa Brodeur. "The most recent example is approval for a new system in Fort McMurray AB, where they will be using the heat and electricity to fuel a new on-site greenhouse."

On Friday August 10th, the new 'Final FIT 2.0 Program' was released by Ontario Power Authority. Now available on-line are the new rules, contract details, price schedule, frequently asked questions and more.
