Do you want to use your green roof to power your house? Would you like to see each wetland and rice paddy field in the world turned into a power plant without harvesting the plants? Plant-e is a company that develops and produces products in which living plants generate electricity.
The company was founded on September 14, 2009 as a spin-off from the sub-department of Environmental Technology of Wageningen University by Marjolein Helder and David Strik. Since her PhD-graduation in November 2012 Marjolein is working full-time as CEO of Plant-e. David works as an assistant professor at Wageningen University and still is an important link between scientific research and the research and development at Plant-e.
