Indoor farming is one method to meet the growing demands of food; this opportunity provides increased yields indoor by controlling the indoor plant environment (IPE). However, controlling both sensible and latent loads in indoor plant environment can be very energy intensive. Energy efficient HVAC systems, including airside economizers help reduce annual energy use and costs of IPE. Performed studies investigated the use of enthalpy-controlled economizers for multiple locations in ASHRAE climate zones 0-8. Lettuce, Cannabis and strawberries were evaluated, the research proved the ability to use OA depends on location, crop type and density.
