Innovative village seeks to develop innovative, scalable solutions in renewable energy and sustainable agriculture by leveraging software and Internet of Things (IoTs) technologies. Innergy collaborates with corporate partners, Chiang Mai University, and its associates on innovative projects to make sustainable energy and agriculture accessible and affordable. In order to improve in any field of smart farming, IoTs is one of smart technology to support smart farming systems that is an expertise and one of main occupations of Innergy. Innergy serves any requirement of customers to offer an answer by developing hardware and software relevant to smart farming systems. The purpose of this valley is to serve any requirement of customers to offer an answer by developing hardware and software relevant to smart farming systems.

- Modular Farming: In our globalized economy, international agricultural products are made easily available everywhere and are now expected amongst consumers with spending power and desires for choice in their diet. These products, unsurprisingly, cost more to import and incur more environmental costs (e.g. carbon footprint in transportation) throughout its supply chain. Yet some fruits and vegetables are not suitable to the local climate. This project aims to develop a turn-key environment-controlled solution for the modern agriculture industry, powered by solar energy. We have commenced our research into the development of a wifi-enabled, sensor control system.
- IoTs sensors for irrigation systems: was set up in vegetable farms in Chiang Mai province, Thailand. The sensors including air temperature, air humidity, solar intensity, and day length are set up into farm field for monitoring temperature, humidity, light intensity, and day length that help farmers to monitor, manage automatically irrigation process via website and application for improving quality of their productivity and reducing water consumption.
- Digital Smart farm Application: was developed for demonstration and controlling factors which affect the cultivation process and crops health of vegetable farms in Chiang Mai province, Thailand. The application receives data from IoT sensors, such as air temperature, humidity, water level, light intensity, etc., for monitoring. Additionally, farmers can control irrigation process via this application.
- Vapor Pressure Deficit Application: was implemented into melon farms in Chiang Mai province, Thailand. The IoTs sensor for vapor pressure deficit was set up into melon farms for capturing data. The real-time data of VPD in air was processed and calculated, then the system will make a decision for release steam mist to balance the VPD value into the normal range.
- Development of environmental sensors for precision agriculture: to measure five parameters including soil temperature, air temperature, soil moisture, air humidity, and light intensity. Moreover, Innovative villages plan to develop sensors to measure more parameters such as CO2, O2, PH, soil fertility, sap flow, etc.
