Welcome to the Midstream Knowledge Hub
Everything you always wanted to know about LED lighting.
We live and breathe LED lighting and have done so for over a decade, so when we say we understand the importance of knowledge you can truly take our word for it. And we know that continued learning and knowledge building is what drive growth and innovation, it certainly did for us, so whether you’re new to the sector or have many years of experience, maybe you’re a client, partner, consultant or architect, the Midstream Knowledge Hub is for you.

Can I swap out my old floodlight bulbs for LEDs?
Attracted by their lower running costs and better performance, an ever-increasing number of organisations are making the switch to LED lighting systems. With many of those businesses having a lighting solution in place already, however, it isn’t uncommon for them to wonder whether they can simply switch out their existing bulbs for LEDs. That line of thought is entirely understandable. On the surface, LED floodlights can look very similar to metal-halide and halogen units – those typically in use within an existing floodlighting solution. And, with costs an ever-present concern, it’s also logical to wonder whether swapping out existing bulbs for LEDs might help to reduce the expense of a system upgrade. Appealing though that prospect may be, the reality is that making the leap to LEDs isn’t quite as simple as switching out your bulbs. In this post, we’ll look at why that is, and what an upgrade to your lighting system really entails.
What do you need to know about LED lighting?
From lower running costs to longer lifespans, there are any number of reasons to make the switch to LED floodlights. What is it exactly that make LEDs such an effective lighting solution, though? What is it that sets them apart from some of the alternative options on the market? In this article, we explore some of the key differentiating factors in the design of modern LED systems – and how those choices help to deliver better performance all round. If you’re yet to make the leap, read on to find the answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about LED lights, and why it’s time to change.
How many lights – and how much power – do I need for my greenhouse?
How exactly do you know how many lights you might need for your own greenhouse, though? And how much power are they likely to need? In this blog, I’ll show how some simple calculations can help you answer both of those questions.
The impact of floodlighting on wildlife
As discussed in some of our previous blogs, LED floodlights offer significant benefits from a sustainability perspective. Not only do LEDs use far less power than gas-based equivalents, for instance, but the longer lifespans and lower maintenance requirements associated with LED technologies also help to ensure that the overall impact on the environment is much smaller too.
