Hi, does anyone know if there is an EnergyPlus or OpenStudio prototypical building for a marijuana growing facility? Haven't found a typical building model for this in any of the commonly known sets.

There is not a prototypical building for growing facilities. You could emulate one by using the Warehouse prototype model and then increasing lighting levels to match a growing environment. You may also need to lower the default zone occupant activity level depending on the agricultural product.

Hi folks! 1 - How can I add the equation for simulate evapotranspiration of the plants? 2 - How can I use the Penman-Monteith equation in simulation to correct the sizing of the equipment?
