The question whether a second screen is an interesting investment for tomato crops without supplementallighting, is examined by monitoring four greenhouse departments. In addition to the purchase of a secondscreen, the heat use turns out to be mainly influenced by the settings for temperature and humidity. It has beenfound that a second screen saved 3 to 4.5 m3/m2 per year and reduced the peak consumption of heat by 15%.This makes the second energy screen only interesting if it also gives advantages to the cultivation.
