Dutch company harvests electricity from living plants to power streetlights, Wi-Fi and cellphones
A Dutch company harnesses electricity from living plants, and then uses it to power cellphone chargers, Wi-Fi hotspots, and now over 300 LED streetlights in two sites in the Netherlands. Plant-e debuted its “Starry Sky” project in November 2014 at an old ammunition site called HAMbrug, near Amsterdam, and plant power is also being used near the company’s headquarters in Wageningen.
