This work involves the study and dissemination of energy management practices for greater energy efficiency in a context of renewable energies, intensive production of flowers in greenhouses and the integration of data sensors, which enables the system to connect and exchange information from these systems to end users in a communication network. These several variavles can be monitored in real time with the support of the Internet of Things (IoT). It is intended to conceive a software and hardware prototype, in one new environment consumption, with the change for renewable energy sources, for better control of the variables involved in plant growth and more sustainability, in this intensive agricultural production sector.
