Ontwikkelbedrijf Greenport Venlo is committed to sustainability. It aims to take into account nature and the landscape, the soil systems and closed water balance systems as much as possible during the redevelopment.

Attractive location

Generating renewable energy is also one of the focus points. In the Californië greenhouse horticultural area, energy is being generated through two geothermal heat sources and companies are encouraged to cover their roofs with solar panels. A wind farm is also scheduled for construction.

By operating in a sustainable manner, Ontwikkelbedrijf Greenport Venlo creates a strong competitive position for the area and makes it an attractive location for companies to establish themselves. Currently, approximately 40% of the energy demand is locally and sustainably produced and supplied. This could go up to 100% and even more in the long-term.




In 2013, Ontwikkelbedrijf Greenport Venlo founded its own energy development company named Etriplus. Etriplus develops renewable energy solutions in this area. The development company has the experience and knowledge needed to implement renewable energy projects.

One of these renewable energy solutions is geothermal heat. If you are located in Trade Port Noord, or are considering establishing here and would like to know whether geothermal energy is a viable option for your business, then read more about it here.
