Hyperbody designs a SynSerre (Synergetic Greenhouse)
The heating and cooling of buildings is responsible for 40% of the total energy use and CO2 emission. Attaching a SynSerre to the building, e.g. the roof, reduces the heat loss of the existing building and at the same time reduces the cost of foundation and land for the greenhouse. Sincerely a synergetic solution! But will greenhouse farmers move to the roofs of buildings? Will transport of products be a problem? Can we combine with other functions? What will be the overall yearly cost and income of a SynSerre? Only a well-designed SynSerre prototype can answer these questions.
