Alfen supplied an energy system that combines a charging hub, energy storage and sustainable production at the Cars Jeans Stadium of ADO Den Haag. The project was executed by ADO Den haag, Scholt Energy Control, Stedin and the Den Haag municipality.
Early 2018, 20 Alfen charge points for electric vehicles were installed. The roof of the stadium was covered with solar panels in 2016. With the addition of a large battery, te benefits can be optimally exploited.
The realised smart grid solutions at the stadium reflect the future of the energy market, where coordination and alignment of energy supply and demand is becoming increasingly important. The battery ensures that solar power generated during the day can be used at night, when it is actually needed the most. For instance to light up the stadium and to charge the batteries of the increasing number of electric vehicles for spectators. In addition, the pressure on the electricity grid is reduced in case many vehicles park and charge simultaneously and at the same location.
