Electricity Generation With Living Plants


Innovation image

Plant-e generates electricity with living plants via unique innovative technology. The technology makes it possible to generate electricity at any scale without harvesting the plants, thus generating electricity day and night, summer and winter. Ultimately, Plant-e's technology can produce electricity in any type of wetland, while preserving its original function. This way it's possible to generate electricity at the same area where food is produced or where nature is conserved. The first products have yet been introduced into the market for smaller scale applications like lighting LED-lights and powering WiFi hotspots.
