The usual energy sources to heat greenhouses will be reviewed before discussion alternative sources to heat greenhouses.  Energy conservation in the heating and cooling of a greenhouse contributes greatly to curtailing production costs.  The talk will illustrate the involvement of student groups in performing energy audits in a commercial greenhouse. Finally the talk will present what the students found and then summarize how to conserve energy in a greenhouse.
