Title: Indoor Agriculture
Speaker: Geoff Brown
Much of the cannabis industry is being poorly service by inefficient, high cost and underperforming HVAC systems. In this session, Geoff Brown will review the science, math and industry trends behind smart HVAC decision for an indoor grow. These are unique buildings, and the misapplication of HVAC technologies has gotten many buildings into trouble – including full crop loss, which can be a million dollars or more at a time. We will counter some of the pervasive myths in the industry, some existing solution bias amongst consulting engineers and help to ensure you’re armed with everything you need to get it right. There is a lot of outdated thinking and misinformation in this industry, and we will ensure that you’re empowered to make the right design decisions and recommendations for your customer. .
