About Alfen

With transformer substations, energy storage systems, charging stations for electric vehicles and a large portfolio of other products, Alfen takes on a central role and is a connecting partner in the electricity grid. With its broad range of in-house developed products and vast experience as systems integrator Alfen is dedicated to build the electricity grid of the future: reliable, sustainable and innovative.

  • Greenhouse horticulture

    For over ten years, Alfen is the number one partner for the greenhouse horticulture industry. We provide CHP connections, transformer substations and construct complete, privately owned high and medium voltage grids. This means we have vast experience with aspects such as installing lighting stations and connecting generators. Alfen realizes complete projects, from the initial design phase to service and maintenance.

  • Grid Operators

    Alfen closely cooperates with various grid operators to future-proof the electricity grid. By joining forces with grid operators, Alfen developed innovative solutions such as the charge points for electric vehicles and power grid automation, while also equipping thousands of medium voltage facilities with remote digital fault passage indicators. Furthermore, Alfen's energy storage system TheBattery enables grid operators to manage, store and use decentrally generated energy.

  • Sustainable Energy

    As our society evolves toward a sustainable one, more and more electricity is generated from energy sources such as solar, wind and bio energy. In addition, electric energy is also increasingly being used to power electric vehicles. Alfen offers a portfolio of solutions to transform, store and distribute sustainable electric energy and is renowned partner in connecting solar farms and wind turbines. 

  • Industry

    Alfen is a highly reliable partner for industrial organizations in the field of distributing electric energy and the construction of electricity grids. Alfen delivers both separate prefab (transformer) stations and complete privately owned high and medium voltage grids. These are all fully serviced, turn-key solutions for the energy supply, which include all management and maintenance services.

Alfen delivers mega energy storage system

Alfen delivers mega energy storage system for Nuon

Unfortunately, sometimes wind turbines cannot be used even though it is a windy day. The energy that is generated is more than the power grid can absorb and gets lost. This problem is now being solved at Nuon’s Prinses Alexia Windpark in Zeewolde, the Netherlands. Dutch company Alfen developed a mega energy storage system by connecting a large number of BMW car batteries. The system stores the surplus of energy so that it can be used when the grid requires the power at a later moment in time.
