What will you do?

Since four years AgroEnergy has entered the field of data science with the introduction of the first data driven energy management solution for the horticulture. Now we are working towards an integration of climate and energy optimization for a better impact on the effectivity of the greenhouse. The solution allows greenhouse owners to run greenhouses with a limited number of skilled staff. Internationally there is a shortage of skilled greenhouse staff. Model based growing can support staff with limited experience to reach higher crop yields and lower energy costs.

AgroEnergy is currently only focused on The Netherlands. For our new proposition we believe there is potential on international markets.  There is a large need for skilled greenhouse growers internationally and a growing demand for fresh vegetables. We need to get a better insight in the potential of our proposition on international markets.
