How we can help you grow more with less

 

Research driven for accelerated plant production

Staying on top of different processes can be daunting in Controlled Environment Agriculture, but our technology is here to make growers’ lives a whole lot easier. Discover the benefits of quickly and efficiently taking control of your production with Light Science Technologies.

Lighting

We work with you to create the perfect growing recipe with fully updateable, bespoke, and intelligent lighting solutions. ​

We combine all this to help you to grow the optimal yield and reduce CAPEX and OPEX cost.​ 

Science

We work in partnership with you and industry experts to test new crops in our controlled environment lab.​

We work with you to use historical and real-time data to help you make future decisions to increase your yield.

Technology

Light Science Technologies is developing research-proven plant monitoring technology and software in partnership with world-leading university research teams.

 

This will provide real time monitoring and control, linking technicians, farmers, and facility managers with their crops to provide instant production enhancement data.

How we created a bespoke vertical farm solution - saving £180K over 4 years

The brief

Light Science Technologies was approached to work collaboratively with our client to develop a Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA) tiered vertical farming as they had been unable to with other suppliers of standard products.

 

Our approach


From the outset, our technical team operated with a 'build from the ground up' approach. We carefully selected our preferred LED partner, validated the design and data, mapped out the LED spacing, and completed the complete electronic design before manufacture.

Key stats
 

  • 4,180 luminaires supplied

  • 209 driver assemblies with over 2km of ELV distribution loom

  • 176,000 horticultural LEDs used

  • V2 luminare savings per annum of 101 KwH and 4 year saving of 404kWh


Key results
 

  • 101 KWh saving on energy in Y1​​

  • 404 KWh saving on energy by Y4​​

  • Minimal issues: Failure rate  - 0.006%​​

  • 26 tonnes ready and installed in 6 weeks
