Hallo Dennis! I like it - not least because it has a lot in common with my CoLab proposal from last year (made Finalist) for Hydroponic Carbon Capture, at https://www.climatecolab.org/web/guest/plans/-/plans/contestId/1300201/planId/1308911. I've updated my own website on the topic (www.http://gas2green.org/) to focus more on the external benefit, that by massively increasing agri efficiency we can save using all this land to feed people with the result we can re-forest much of it and get serious CO2 reduction that way. I was going to go back in to CoLab this year with an update focusing on stacked hydroponics in greenhouses, PLUS the CO2 bit from that proposal, but since you're halfway there I don't want to seem to be plagiarising! I've updated my own website on the topic (www.http://gas2green.org) to pick up FAR more on the external benefit, that by quadrupling agri efficiency we can stop using masses of land to feed people, with the result we can re-forest it and get serious CO2 reduction (and a much more pleasant world). So, why don't we roll-in the elevated CO2 aspect into your scheme? Greenhouse + stacking + LED is good, but add elevated CO2 and it can be great... As my website and last year's proposal make clear, combining LED with raised CO2 levels can dramatically increase yield - plus it makes agriculture climate-change-proof, pest-proof and is low cost to implement. On a personal note, as my website also makes clear I'm seriously not looking for any personal reward from this, I just want to see it happening! That said, if you'd like to partner-up I'm definitely up for it. What do you think? If you'd like a chat let me know, I'd be happy to share thoughts. You'll certainly need a LOT more detail to get past the initial judging, and hopefully my previous work will help. Cheers Mark

Sorry, messed up the second website link (accidentally included the bracket, oops!) - so correct website is http://gas2green.org
