A sustainable future at the Johan Cruijff ArenA

See how we make the world-famous Johan Cruijff ArenA
more energy-efficient with energy storage.

Making the Johan Cruijff ArenA more energy-efficient

The 3 megawatt energy-storage system at the Johan Cruijff ArenA is the largest energy storage system using second-life and new electric vehicle batteries in a commercial building in Europe.  

Reliable and efficient energy supply and usage

The energy storage system provides a more reliable and efficient energy supply and usage for the stadium, its visitors, neighbours and the Dutch energy grid. Combining Eaton power conversion units and the equivalent of 148 Nissan LEAF batteries, leveraged by the technology of The Mobility House, the energy storage system not only enables a more sustainable energy system, but also creates a circular economy for electric vehicle batteries.

Flexible storage capacity

The energy storage system plays an important role in balancing the supply and demand of energy at the Johan Cruijff ArenA. The storage system has a total capacity of 3 megawatts, enough to power several thousand households. This capacity also means that the energy produced by the 4,200 solar panels on the roof of the ArenA can be stored and used optimally. The energy storage system will provide back-up power, reduce the use of diesel generators, and provide relief to the energy grid by flattening the peaks that occur during concerts.
  • Leading the way

    The energy storage system at the Johan Cruijff ArenA has been officially recognised.
