What is the future?

1. Interoperability between energy sector and horticultural sector.

Light & Heat creates a strong link between human life and nature. Energy cannot be consumed. It can only be converted to another form. Therefore, the Mesled technology converts the excess grid energy into an energy stored in healthy food produced in modern greenhouses.

Greenhouse farming is usually located outside the residential area, where light intensity changes are irrelevant. Mesled technology can be used flexibly in order to support the grid stability. Here the key condition is an all-year greenhouse operation in order to permanently provide the balancing service. Mesled' s unique virtual insulation keeps the greenhouses always available for a power grid regulation. 

"Mesled smart technology can utilize the unpredictable excess production of Renewable Energy Sources in order to provide better farming conditions in greenhouses."

2. Smart and healthy city.

An efficient (maximal waste heat utilization), reliable (water-cooled LEDs) and smart (three operational regimes based on weather conditions) demand response appliance (greenhouse with Mesled technology) is a solution enabling the sector to build smart grids and smart cities for sustainable future.

3. Smart, healthy and safe city

Each light source is at the same time a waste heat source. Electricity consumption is always connected with thermal losses. However, this redundant energy is should be reutilized. This concerns the modern LED technology, too. LED' s heat output represents 70% of its electricity consumption. This waste heat represents a huge opportunity that should be utilized. A simple, yet very smart solution is to transport it via a working fluid medium to the place of need. Such an approach increases sustainability and reliability of the technology and its operation.

Waste heat from artificial lighting is generated everywhere and poses a fire risk. Active medium has much higher cooling capacity than the passive cooler used in standard LEDs and thus eliminates this risk far better and at the same time creates opportunities for its optimal utilization.

"Thus, as LEDs are semiconductors, they are also a combined source of light and waste heat."
