Heat is needed in the greenhouses for the plants that grow there. Previously, the heat came from a central heating installation or a CHP installation, in which gas is burned and converted into heat. This heat goes into the greenhouse. However, this is quite an expensive solution. In addition, the energy market has experienced major fluctuations in recent years, which is unfavorable for the stability of horticultural companies. In response to this, 9 horticultural companies in Kwintsheul, led by Paul van Schie, took the initiative in 2016 to use geothermal energy to heat the greenhouses. This resulted in the geothermal project Nature’s Heat.
