My company, CogniTek, specializes in energy efficiency. We are developing an LED panel for use in vertical farming configurations which will reduce capital costs by 10-25%, plus reductions in operating costs depending on the existing system. However, as our expertise is in energy (vs farming), we are searching for companies with LED vertical farming experience that are willing to share their knowledge, in particular business economics, energy and food growth issues. In exchange we could analyze your energy use and recommend ways to decrease related costs.
