GLASE to Offer CEA Benchmarking Webinar

The Greenhouse Lighting and Systems Engineering (GLASE) consortium will present a free webinar on a new CEA database and benchmark tool for growers.

The webinar will take place Oct. 22, 2020 at 2 p.m. EDT. It will be presented by Erico Mattos of GLASE and Kyle Clark of EnSave.

Technologies used in CEA facilities have been rapidly evolving, providing growers with energy efficient solutions to reduce energy consumption and maximize production profitability.

However, the lack of public information and industry benchmarks represents a challenge to identify and implement new energy efficient technologies.

A controlled environment agriculture (CEA) database and benchmark tool would allow growers to identify energy efficiency opportunities, prioritize investments and make comparisons with other facilities. Utility companies will benefit from the aggregated data to identify industry standard practices and trends, market projections, and energy load and demand planning.

Government agencies will be able to gain industry insights to foster the adoption of energy efficient technologies aimed at strengthening the CEA agriculture sector through improved economic, environmental, and social outcomes.
