This voluntary survey is intended to help identify the variations in energy and water intensity of indoor agriculture operations as a function of factors such as technology and climate. Share your data and we'll show you how your facility compares to others. The results will help identify best practices for minimize energy use and greenhouse-gas emissions.

In exchange for your efforts, we will calculate and confidentially provide your water- and carbon footprint, plus other useful metrics.

To get meaninfgul results, be honest and accurate in the info you provide.

Watch this space for an anonymized summary of results.

Your results will be posted together with this code that only you know, so you can see how you compare.
Size of cultivation area *This question is required.
Feel free to combine multiple rooms if the production environment is similar. Otherwise, just return to survey and create a separate entry for each room.
Method *This question is required.
Cycle duration (excluding clone) *This question is required.
For drying, only include number of days for which energy-using equipment (fans, dehumid, etc.) are used.

Energy use
This is the most important information in the whole survey. Be sure to EXCLUDE use for ordinary living areas. Enter zero ("0") for rows that don't apply. Enter values TOTAL values (for the entire cycle - veg through dry) OR break it out by stage if that's easier for you. In the "How often?" columns, enter the period of time covered by the numbers to the left. For example, this could be "per day", "per week", "per month", "per year" or "per cycle". Per cycle is very much preferred, but use whatever is easiest and most accurate. If reporting brief periods during the cycle, avoid particularly high or low use periods, or average them together.
