Agrifood and renewable energy

Flevoland offers space for and support to a number of initiatives on renewable energy or sustainable production methods.  Wind energy, bio-energy and solar energy are generated on a  large scale in this province, which, as a result, is 60%  self-supporting in its total demand for energy.

Approximately 65% of Flevoland is still dedicated to agriculture. Here, you’ll find some of the largest and most efficient farms in Europe. The region also has comprehensive areas for high-quality horticulture, including large greenhouses, and accommodates a major part of the famous Dutch bulbs industry. Many institutes and businesses have developed specific know-how through close cooperation with a number of R&D facilities specialized in various aspects of agribusiness.
