Qatar University along with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment, to develop the first solar agricultural greenhouse
Qatar University has been provided with a grant by the Qatar National Research Fund for the project, to deliver a thermally insulated greenhouse that allows the entry of optimum solar radiation levels through negative linear Fresnel lenses on the roof.
In comparison to a conventional greenhouse the monthly cooling load of the proposed greenhouse is about 80% less. Therefore the project can achieve the benefits of a closed greenhouse while overcoming the high cooling demand, in subtropical and arid regions.
