Fluence, a provider of energy-efficient LED lighting solutions for floriculture, medicinal cannabis, and food production, is supporting sustainability and operational cost efficiency amid volatile energy market conditions in Europe. Leading floriculture companies have switched to Fluence’s LED technology to increase photon output and energy efficiency and maximize their return on investment. Fluence’s RAPTR light fixture and Wireless Flex Dimming control panel offer greater flexibility and control over light intensity. In addition, Fluence’s team of horticultural experts works with partners to design lighting programs based on operation-specific crops and sustainability goals.
Fluence, a leading provider of energy-efficient LED lighting solutions for floriculture, medicinal cannabis, and food production, supports sustainability and operational cost efficiency amid volatile energy market conditions in Europe. The soaring energy prices in Europe have affected many growers in countries such as the Netherlands, which primarily produces electricity through gas-powered cogeneration engines.
Leading floriculture companies, including Bernhard Kwekerijen, Moerman Lilium, Deliflor Chrysanten, Beyond Chrysant, and Ten Have Plant, have Switched from high-pressure sodium (HPS) fixtures to Fluence’s LED technology to increase photon output and energy efficiency. The LED technology offered by Fluence provides greater flexibility in modifying energy consumption and light intensity according to energy market price instability. In addition, the company’s RAPTR light fixture and Wireless Flex Dimming control panel help growers maximize their investment return while increasing light intensity control.
Moerman Lilium, a lily cultivator, has 13 hectares of crops under full LED lighting and uses Fluence’s RAPTR fixtures regulated via a Wireless Flex Dimming controller. The company uses Fluence solutions to react quickly and modify light intensity based on market conditions and expects to save at least 45% on electricity costs with the investment in Fluence’s LED lighting solutions. Deliflor Chrysanten, the global market leader in breeding and propagating chrysanthemum varieties, opted for Fluence’s RAPTR Broad R8 spectrum for its breeding facilities for better visibility and growth. Beyond Chrysant, a leading Dutch chrysanthemum cultivator, also chose Fluence’s RAPTR solution for its customizability and high-visibility spectrum.
Even in hybrid lighting environments, growers see the benefits of using LED technology. Bernhard Kwekerijen, a rose, orchid, and patio plant nursery, promotes a carbon-neutral and sustainable operation by using geothermal heat and its photovoltaic field of solar panels to generate energy. By incorporating Fluence’s RAPTR fixtures, the company has elevated CO2-neutral cropping in its Phalaenopsis cultivation. Ten Have Plant, one of Westland’s oldest potted plant nurseries, selected Fluence as its lighting solutions partner to achieve better crop and root development in addition to reducing costs and increasing energy efficiency.
Fluence’s team of horticultural experts works closely with partners to design lighting programs based on operation-specific crop and sustainability goals. The LED fixtures offered by Fluence are widely used by leading cannabis, commercial agriculture, and floriculture companies across Europe, demonstrating the flexibility and universal benefit of transitioning to LED technology. The company is excited to work with Dutch floriculture growers to support them in reducing their dependency on fossil energy and engaging in sustainable practices while confronting the unpredictability of Europe’s energy market.
