The ArenA battery just gained a new fan, and quite an impressive one. The World Economic Forum, the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation, provides a platform for the world’s 1,000 leading companies to shape a better future. They are endorsing the our smart energy storage system through Facebook and their website, and as they say themselves, the ArenA battery is worth cheering about.
The largest European battery using second-life and new electric vehicle batteries in a commercial building is live. Amsterdam Alderman Udo Kock, deputy mayor for Finance and Economic Affairs (Amsterdam) conducted the official opening ceremony of the energy storage system in the Johan Cruijff ArenA on Friday June 30.
Last week saw the launch of the Livable Smart Cities Alliance in which the municipalities of Amsterdam and Warsaw have agreed to invest in urban livability. It comes from an initiative by the United Nations, the city of Amsterdam, the Johan Cruijff Arena and Geodan/EduGIS. The city of Amsterdam has designated Zuidoost as the testing ground for the project. People living in this suburb in Amsterdam’s southeast will be the first to get started on livability in this way.
