In the ongoing search for sustainable solutions and green energy, CTPark Amsterdam City has made impressive progress. In close collaboration with various companies under the Koolen Industries Group, the park has implemented a state-of-the-art sustainability system. With 12,000 solar panels on the roof and an advanced energy storage system, CTPark Amsterdam City is now an example of green innovation and efficiency.
Solar energy as main source
One of the most striking features of this sustainable transformation is the use of solar energy. The roof of CTPark Amsterdam City is equipped with no fewer than 12,000 solar panels, which generate green energy from the power of the sun. This installation supplies the park with a significant amount of electricity, reducing its ecological footprint while saving costs.
24/7 Energy Availability
To ensure that the generated solar energy is available 24 hours a day, CTPark Amsterdam City has invested in an advanced energy storage system. This system stores excess energy during sunny days and makes it available for use even when the sun has disappeared below the horizon. This increases the reliability of green energy and makes the park less dependent on the regular electricity grid.
Bidirectional AC Charging Points and Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) Innovation
Another impressive development in CTPark Amsterdam City is the installation of 200 bi-directional AC charging points. These charging points have the option to not only charge vehicles, but also supply energy back to the electricity grid. This innovative approach uses Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) technology, which allows electric vehicles to serve as mobile energy storage systems.
This means that the vehicles connected to the charging points can act as flexible energy storage devices. With a potential power of no less than 12 Megawatts, these vehicles can make a significant contribution to stabilizing the energy network.
Smart Software for Optimal Efficiency
To make optimal use of this advanced energy system, intelligent software is crucial. The smart software is constantly making calculations and making strategic choices for the charging infrastructure.
For example, when there is a lot of solar energy available, the software will prioritize charging electric vehicles as quickly as possible. However, as soon as the sun disappears or energy needs increase, the bidirectional charging stations can supply energy back to the grid to meet demand. This process minimizes the use of conventional energy sources and makes the system more efficient and sustainable.
The implementation of this advanced energy infrastructure at CTPark Amsterdam City marks an important step in the transition to a sustainable future. Harnessing solar energy and integrating V2G technology demonstrate how companies can contribute to the energy transition and the fight against climate change.
Thanks to the collaboration with the Koolen Industries Group and the application of intelligent software, CTPark Amsterdam City is at the forefront of sustainability and innovation. This is an inspiring example for companies worldwide committed to a greener future.
