Green energy meets high-tech efficiency

Umwelt Arena partnered with ABB to harness solar power and deliver automated energy efficiency technologies for complete energy sustainability. The roof is clad with an array of solar panels that, along with 26 solar inverters, generate enough electricity for a day’s worth of consumption with just one hour of sunlight.

Excess energy is stored in lithium ion phosphate batteries or used to turn water into hydrogen fuel, allowing the building to be 100% energy self-sufficient all year long.

In addition to using ABB solutions to generate renewable energy, the ABB-free@home® building automation system reduces energy consumption to a minimum while maximizing comfort. Residents can configure lighting and window covering combinations based on their preferences, which the system can remember and offer as options in the future. By pressing a “goodbye” button, all appliances are switched off when leaving the apartment.

Sensors outside and indoors allow the ABB-free@home® building automation system to automatically optimize the comfort of each apartment to changing conditions in the most energy-efficient manner possible. For example, if the apartment is too warm due to sunlight hitting the window, the curtains will be closed automatically.
