dc.description.abstract In this paper a new design is presented for an energy self-sufficient greenhouse located in Arviat, Nunavut, Canada. The goal is to produce vegetables that can be sold at competitive prices to those that are transported in. The design consists of a detailed layout of the facility, including building materials, growing beds, an irrigation system, a heating and ventilation system, and a detailed description of how power will be supplied to the facility using renewable resources. The design meets all specifications outlined by the client. The design was simulated with 2006 climatic data with an Excel model. The results indicate the design can be implemented. en
