Plant-e's mission is to provide a high-tech, nature-based solution by generating electricity with living plants. By using this technology, we can power stand-alone electrical equipment - such as lighting and sensors - without connecting to the electricity grid and wherever plants and water are available. At the same time, we reduce methane emissions and store CO2 on. This makes us the only company in the world that CO2- produces negative power: clean, green and reliable.
The world needs not only renewable but also truly sustainable energy sources to power the world in the future without harming the planet. Per location you will have to investigate which sustainable sources are best suited there. This will often be a mix of different sources. Electricity from plants as we develop it is not only a very sustainable source, but also one that can be used almost everywhere. Wherever plants can grow and water is available, we can produce electricity to contribute to the sustainable energy mix we need.
Our products are sustainable and not just because we produce renewable electricity. We use materials that are inert in our systems. This means that they do not dissolve or break down in the soil and nature, so in no way negatively affect it. In addition, the system has a lifespan of more than 50 years, so after installation nature no longer needs to be disturbed. In addition, our products are also high tech! Although you only see the plants and the lighting, we use complex technology around the roots to effectively harvest the power. With our products we can contribute to a beautiful light experience in the city park or along a cycling or walking path. In addition, we are developing the technology for applying sensors. With this we will soon be able to collect data all over the world using power from plants. In this way we can prevent the use of batteries. Batteries are not sustainable and the lithium needed for batteries is running out. Plant flow is a wonderful alternative.
Plant-e supplies various nice and beautiful products. Not only good for the planet, but also educational!
Plant-e generates electricity from live plants using a Plant Microbial Fuel Cell (P-MFC).
