Alfen supplies storage system to BAM and Stedin for smart energy neighbourhood
Alfen was selected by BAM and Stedin to supply a 200 kWh energy storage system for a renovated housing district in Woerden, the Netherlands. The project is part of BAM’s and Stedin’s innovative Rennovates project, focused on developing smart energy-based communities resulting in energy-neutral housing by reducing energy consumption and maximizing the use of renewable energy.
The neighbourhood in Woerden consists of 39 houses that have recently been renovated, amongst others with isolation and rooftop solar panels. To align the local energy production and consumption with the available capacity of the electricity network of Stedin, various forecasting tools and smart assets are being rolled out. Alfen’s community battery storage system forms the central part of the congestion management pool to keep demand, supply and network availability under control.
