About Greenhouses in Transition

Greenhouses in Transition focuses on collaborations between sectors within the food-energy-water nexus that enable increased regional sustainability of the Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) sector.

  • Transitioning CEA to become more environmentally sustainable requires effective resource allocation that considers the competition for land, water, nutrients and variable renewable energy resources across industries and society.
  • Sectors within the Water-Food-Energy nexus, including CEA, are often socially and economically embedded in a region. Changes within these can impact regional systems as a whole.
  • An integrated, transdisciplinary approach is needed to create a more sustainable CEA sector.
