Working in partnership with Amsterdam Arena and trusted partners, Eaton is implementing one of Europe's largest energy storage systems in a commercial building. With a minimum capacity of 3 megawatt hours, that can be upscaled when necessary, the storage system functions as an emergency power supply, captures peaks in energy demand and ensures the stability in the regular energy network.
4000 solar panels on the stadium roof provide renewable power that can be stored and then used at peak times. The energy storage capability enables the Amsterdam ArenA to peak shave when required whilst also balancing the electricity grid and reducing their dependence on diesel generators. Future aspirations are to play a central role in the development of a local smart energy grid supplying energy to other commercial buildings.
