Abstract A consortium of companies, together with Wageningen UR, is developing a greenhouse that will maximise the amount of light entering between October and March. The goal is to achieve 10% extra yield during these months. The gain in light should come from a combination of various adjustments and improvements. Following the theoretical simulation models and physical scale models, the first winter-light greenhouse will be built next year as ‘proof of principle’ at the Innovation- and Demonstration centre in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands.
