The cooperation between these two platforms in different industries and fields, work together, can realize not only multi-energy complementary comprehensive smart energy application innovation and demonstration scenarios, but also reduce almost half of the operating costs in the production of modern facility agriculture projects. This enables early returns of the investment.
