PlanetEnergy SL

…dedicated to integrating renewable energy and resource efficiency into agriculture and food production through the circular economy.

Let us introduce ourselves

Helping you do what you do, only better

PlanetEnergy creates tailor-made solutions to ensure your business makes the most of its limited resources. Whether it is creating energy from your waste streams for integration into your processing or creating a mini-grid with solar, batteries and other sources to supply your electricity needs or integrating wastewater and rainwater into your production or processing to reduce your blue water footprint—or all of these things together—we help you to reduce your costs and take advantage of what you already have around you.

How we approach your challenges

Creating EnergyIslands and EnergyCommunities

We analyse every project individually, looking for where we can add most value to reduce your costs and improve overall efficiency. From analysing your energy bills to your waste streams together with your demand for electricity, heating and cooling as well as water, we’re able to identify those efficiency gaps and provide integrated solutions with small- and large-scale technologies to provide the most appropriate solution for your needs.

How we turn challenges into solutions

Dairies, cheesemakers, wineries, grains processing, or any kind of food production or agriculture has the potential to be an EnergyIsland. Small, rural communities and large industrial parks are ideal for EnergyCommunities. By taking a holistic point of view, we can look at not just your own production but can look further down your supply chain as well to see where improvements can be made.

All projects go through the same steps:

  • Analyse available resources in the installation or community and surrounding areas;
  • Analyse energy demand of the client(s);
  • Evaluate the appropriate technology mix to get the most energy from available resources at the lowest cost;
  • Design the mini-grid, combining energy demand with generation;
  • Work with local installers to ensure on-spec implementation

This way, we can reduce any potential external or internal risks after every stage, ensuring success. Larger projects can be easily broken down into longer-term investment plans where cost savings from earlier steps help to pay for the investment into later steps, ensuring financial sustainability of the project as well.

Our partners
and memberships

The Private Sector Mechanism is an open platform providing a permanent seat for private enterprises right across the agri-food value chain, from farmers, to input providers, cooperatives, processors, SMEs and food companies. The private sector and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, along with civil society and the research community, have permanent seats on the CFS Advisory Group alongside member countries of the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) of the United Nations.

The Iberian Regenerative Agriculture Association brings together practitioners of regenerative agriculture from across the Iberian peninsula—Spain and Portugal—into a community of practice where we learn from each other and support each other in our transition towards being the best stewards of the land possible while creating living rural communities through agriculture and livestock production.

Habelarte is the association representing farmers and livestock producers in the Mendialdea region of northern Navarra dedicated to the transitions towards agroecology. Founded in 2021 during the COVID-19 pandemic in response to the need to create short, local supply chains to ensure food sovereignty and food production in line with the environment, Habelarte represents these producers and works with local consumers to bring them together for a sustainable future.

The Red de Semillas de Navarra is a local seed network dedicated to identifying and preserving local seed varieties and therefore biodiversity in the environment as well as our food systems. We actively participate in the network by multiplying as many as three different varieties of vegetables in a given year in order to produce seeds that we later share back with the network as well as continue to produce in our own gardens.
