You have a choice of tree main types of greenhouse heating, electric, gas and paraffin. Of course all have their advantages and drawbacks, and it is important to take these into sonsideration when choosing a method that will suit your needs and situation perfectly.
Solar energy or wind turbines may become a consideration in the future but at the moment they are far too expensive due in part to the poor heat retention qualities of a greenhouse. Spent cooking oil is used occasionally commercially but is messy, smelly and not really suited to small scale operation.
Don't forget that The temperature in your greenhouse during the winter shouldn't dip below 10C and throughout the year the daily variation shouldn't be more than 10C. So choose your greenhouse wisely since, in addition to any of these different heating methods plus insulation during cold weather, in the summer you'll need adequate ventilation to cool the greenhouse and introduce an effective flow of air.
