The important role of grow lights in indoor farming, and its' standards and design guidelines

In the last few decades there has been a trend for populations to shift from rural to urban areas. This increase in urbanisation made it necessary to rethink how urban areas need to be structured.

One of the bigger issues highly dense populations face is the food supply, especially where space is an issue. With more and more people living in urban centres and food security becoming a perennial concern, producers and suppliers can’t afford to ignore this trend. Recent technological developments and price drops of key equipment lead to an increased interest in indoor farming. In particular, lighting plays a key role in urban farming since it is one of the major parameters needed in plant development. The potential to turn small, urban spaces into highly efficient food production facilities could bring locally grown organic produce to even the world’s most densely populated cities.

This new approach requires innovation both in methods and equipment. Our webinar hosted by TÜV SÜD experts Asli Solmaz-Kaiser and Marvin Böll, will explore the role of grow lights in indoor farming and the regulations and general design strategies that apply. 

Key topics will include:

  • An introduction to indoor farming
  • What are grow lights?
  • What are the standards that apply to grow lights?
  • Where do those standards apply?

This webinar is ideal for manufacturers and distributors of lighting equipment, indoor farmers, and suppliers of indoor farming equipment across Europe, North America and Asia. Watch the on-demand now.
