CPE’s collaboration with Nutralight and University of South Wales (USW), featured in the latest issue of Advances Wales this month. Nutralight is an LED manufacturer specializing in smart lighting, sensing and control solutions for the horticultural market. Smart horticultural lighting is a vastly growing market and is integral to the self-sustaining vertical farms that are set to revolutionize the horticulture industry.
The CPE collaboration involved optical modelling to minimise the loss of light ensuring that every photon counts. Peter Rees from USW explained: “When you’re looking at indoor horticulture, every little percentage point of power matters. The lights are running for many hours each day and are quite energy consuming, so there is a lot of benefit to be gained even by small improvements in the efficiency.”
