Wijnen Square Crops' capacity has proved sufficient in recent times. Wijnen is even considering supplying energy to neighbouring companies. "The knowledge, the technology, it's all here. We can save an enormous amount of time and money using the things we have. Soon, we'll be able to provide people with all kinds of sustainable produce."

Wijnen is a strong advocate of CHP (combined heat and power), the use of a heat engine or a power station to simultaneously generate both electricity and useful heat. "Geothermal energy lends itself perfectly to a combination with CHP. The ideal mixture is 70-80% thermal energy and 20-30% CHP."
