US (NY): Research leads to affordable lighting systemsThe Greenhouse Lighting and Systems Engineering (GLASE) consortium is a partnership between controlled environment agriculture (CEA) growers, plant physiologists, horticulturists, trade groups, produce buyers, agricultural engineers, lighting manufacturers, government agencies, and others to pioneer and commercialize breakthrough technologies that deliver greenhouse crop and energy solutions.
Established in 2017 by Cornell University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) and the Center for Lighting Enabled Systems & Applications (LESA) at Rensselaer, GLASE unites world-class engineers and horticultural researchers with private and public stakeholders.
The consortium goal is to transform the way lighting systems operate in greenhouses and indoor farms dramatically reducing their energy consumption while increasing crop yields and quality. To achieve these objectives GLASE is proposing a multidisciplinary approach to close the gaps between different segments of the CEA industry and to create new innovative solutions.
GLASE has secured $5 million for research over the next seven years and is inviting industry members to join the consortium and help advance the future of the controlled environment agriculture industry.
