Welcome to LEDs Magazine’s Horticultural Lighting + Tech newsletter for Nov. 7, 2022. The inaugural Resilient Harvests Conference wrapped up last week. We heard from colleagues and industry attendees that the event aptly represented the interdisciplinary nature of controlled environment agriculture (CEA) — and the prospects for collaborative discussion between policymakers, program directors, practitioners, and technology/service providers were fulfilled. You can follow the conference on LinkedIn for updates.
Meanwhile, readers can learn more about the potential for standardizing energy metrics and formulating best practices in CEA and controlled environment horticulture (CEH) in an article covering an intriguing California study launched by industry researchers and supported by Pacific Gas & Electric. Furthermore, the latest cannabis-focused lighting market research shows an increase in the use of LEDs for a variety of reasons, not solely about energy savings. Also, contributors from Energy Code Ace translate the modifications to CA Title 24 that specifically address horticultural lighting, bringing CEA facilities designers, architects, and operators up to speed with the code.
