We develop sensors that draw their power from living plants.

In this way we avoid the use of batteries and offer a sustainable alternative. This technology is often integrated with Internet-of-Things (IoT) techniques.


We adapt the Plant-e system for groundwater, soil moisture and various environmental sensors. This contributes to a more efficient and cost-effective water supply for plants in urban areas, because we know exactly when water is needed. This allows us to reduce water supply and associated travel movements by 25%.

The Plant-e system is also extremely useful at remote locations for monitoring local conditions, such as groundwater levels.

Our first IoT solutions – such as groundwater, soil moisture and phenology sensors – have been successfully applied in pilots and are ready for the next phase. For more information about this, please visit our reference projects.

Projects with sensors

We discuss projects in close consultation with the client, where various applications are possible with our technology. Below you will find some example projects that we have completed.

We are ready to discuss with you and convert your sustainable wishes into a green energy project. Contact us at  sales@plant-e.com and we will contact you for an initial information meeting or to provide more information.

For the Golf and Sustainability Enthusiasts, Plant-e, in collaboration with De Enk Groen & Golf, proudly presents a groundbreaking project that's […]
Plant-e is currently setting up a pilot project for wireless water level measurement in a peat area in Sumatra.


We'd love to see what we can do for you!
