Fifth Season and Scale Microgrid Solutions are hosting a breakfast event on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 during the Global Clean Action Forum Week.

Fifth Season and Scale Microgrid Solutions are hosting a breakfast event on Wednesday, September 21, 2022 during the Global Clean Action Forum Week.


Fifth Season - based in Pittsburgh - is one of the key players in the growing vertical farming space. Their indoor farm uses 97% less land and 95% less water than traditional farming, and the advanced AI robotics that operate the farm are bringing costs in line with conventional crops.

In order to create an optimal indoor farming environment, Fifth Season needs to ensure affordable, clean and reliable power.

The microgrid at Fifth Season utilizes a combination of solar, battery, and a dispatchable generator outfitted with advanced emissions control technology.

The solar panels used on this project have a peel and stick application that doesn't require a frame or mounting equipment. This unique technical feature makes for extremely light construction by eliminating the need to make structural changes to existing roofs.

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Innovative SWIR camera for UAV based spectral remote sensing

Allied Vision's compact and light weight Alvium SWIR (short wave infrared) cameras are the ideal choice to build cost-effective OEM systems used in embedded and machine vision applications. The cameras support a spectral range from 400 nm to 1700 nm at high quantum efficiencies. This allows to capture images in both the visible and SWIR spectra with a single camera and enables users to reduce overall system costs! Equipped with Sony's IMX990 and IMX991 SenSWIR InGaAs sensors, Alvium SWIR cameras deliver high image quality and frame rates. This makes them well suited for drones or handheld devices used in various industries such as, agriculture, mining, solar cell inspection or medical.
