With LED lighting systems including smart biofeedback loops, Heliospectra automates plant production and achieves energy savings as well as greater yields.

The Heliospectra LED lighting system with biofeedback “listens” to plants using reflected light and fluorescence. This information helps the system optimize the light spectrum to produce only the specific light required, while encouraging desired plant characteristics. The result is energy and water savings, greater yields, lower waste, and improved produce quality. A software management system provides growers with improvements based on the results of the whole grower community. The data is aggregated in an online database with predictive algorithms in order to create the best light conditions for growers depending on the type of crops and environmental conditions.

The smart lighting system consists of remotely controlled, adjustable spectrum lights combined with sensors that provide information on how the plants are using the light.

Why you should care

With changes due to global warming, increased population and urbanization, there is a greater need for locally produced food with continuous and regular crops. With LED-based lighting systems, it is possible to reduce energy costs, create healthier and more durable plants, and reduce waste as well as the need for transportation.

How the Global Goals are addressed

Zero Hunger

Using LED lights to optimise growing conditions can improve food production efficiency, which will be needed if we are to double food production and feed the estimated 9 billion by 2050.

Climate Action

The system can reduce CO2 emissions by 21 million metric tons annually if used by 20% of the market.
