Urban densification and climate change are creating a multitude of issues for cities around the globe. Contributing factors include increased impervious surfaces that result in poor stormwater management, rising urban temperatures, poor air quality, and a lack of available green space. In the context of volatile weather, there are growing concerns...

... In general, the green process is presented in such a way that all concerns are linked and that all parts of every decision must be addressed, and thus the idea of reviewing the principles independently is in opposition with it. Green building design is one of the solutions in the field of sustainable architecture and green architecture to harmonize with the climate and minimize excessive use of reserves and natural resources [43,44]. ...
... Incandescent grow lights Emission of light from heating Less efficient for plant growth due to intrinsic physic of blackbody radiation Massive amount of heat production can be harmful to plants Distance between incandescent grow lights and plants should not be less than 24 inches to avoid damages Marcos and Mai (2020) Halogen grow lights Emission of light from heating High luminosity and better colour in contrast to incandescent grow lights High temperature of the halogen grow lights can be harmful to plants Halogen grow lights produce light of red spectrum and very less from blue spectrum Mills and Dunn (2016) Fluorescent grow lights They are significantly efficient for plant growth as they produce light of in the range of visible spectrum They can be utilized for the growth of various plant species Efficiency of fluorescent grow lights decrease with time making them less suitable for controlled environment agriculture Cammarisano et al. (2021) High Pressure Sodium grow lights These are high-intensity discharge lamps Blue and orange lights are produced essential for growth of various plant species Massive generation of heat and poor CRI Gomez et al. (2013) Metal halide grow lights These lights provide UV light of all types, UVA,UVB, and UVC bands Less efficient than LED lights High capital cost and expansive handling Produces more heat than LED Gupta et al. (2017) Induction grow lights These lights interfere with Wi-Fi functionality due to magnetic induction Poor light penetration, poor efficiency, and high cost Kreuger et al. (2018) LED grow lights LED can produce lights of desired spectrum from blue-red spectrum LED light spectrum supports a wide range of plants species for growth Minimum heat generation and heat produced can be utilized for maintaining temperature in indoor farming LED light sources are extremely efficient, environment friendly, and can be used continuously Zareie et al. (2020) stilbene compound synthesis (Ahn et al., 2015a, b). There is an increase in stilbene production as well as the expression of 16 defense-related genes when plant products are exposed to various LEDs. ...
