Abstract The paper explores possibility of using BES in performance evaluation of commercial
agricultural greenhouses, focusing on the necessary adaptations and additional models
required to obtain reliable results. The paper provides a high-level evaluation of
relevant physical phenomena for energy performance of greenhouses. A comparison
is made regarding the importance of each phenomenon in normal buildings and in
greenhouses. The paper also need for models to predict the crop production and the
necessary validation of BES models for the prediction of performance in greenhouses.
Preliminary validation by inter-model comparison shows promising results and
indicates that BES can be used for the energy performance evaluation of greenhouses.
