As part of the project we are developing a city pilot to demonstrate how we can use locally generated renewable energy to reduce carbon emissions and cut costs.
We will install large scale photovoltaic energy generation and battery storage at one or more of our sites around the city and introduce innovative vehicle-to-grid electric vehicle charging.
This will allow us to:
During the pilot we plan to integrate:
There are four city pilots in Arnhem, London, Nottingham and Schwäbisch Gmünd. We are coordinating activity between the city pilots. The project is being led by the City of Arnhem in The Netherlands.
