Consortium to Offer Webinar on Standardized Horticultural Lighting Label

The Greenhouse Lighting and Systems Engineering (GLASE) consortium will present a webinar on a newly proposed standardized horticultural lighting label.

The webinar will take place on Sep 7., at 2:00 pm eastern time.

Recent advances in light-emitting diode (LED) technology now provide the horticultural industry with multiple lighting options. However, growers are often unable to compare technologies and LED options due to insufficient data on lamp performance metrics. As a result, researchers are now proposing a standardized product label that facilitates the comparison of lamps across manufacturers.

During the webinar, A.J. Both from Rutgers University and Ryan Siddon from Intertek will talk about the importance of horticultural lighting standards, the proposed horticultural lighting label and the unique requirements for horticultural luminaires.

The GLASE consortium is led by Cornell University’s Controlled Environment Agriculture group and the Center for Lighting Enabled Systems and Applications (LESA) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), along with Rutgers University and is supported by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA).
