Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the new benchmark in global stadium design
Project Type: Power System Study
Client: Tottenham Hotspur Stadium
Location: North London

Project Details

Tottenham Hotspur Stadium is the new benchmark in global stadium. Home to the Tottenham Hotspur Football Club of the English Premiere League it is also the first purpose-built stadium for the National Football League in Europe.

Regarding the project, Sir David Richards, Chairman of Kynsman Limited wrote:

“I would not hesitate in recommending the services of Dr Chilvers to any client in the world who is seriously considering energy cost reduction and decarbonisation using innovate technology.”

What We Did

LIV Energy’s technical team conducted a detailed power system study of the impact of the public electricity grid on the stadium electrical network.

LIV Energy’s engineers then designed a modularized battery storage system throughout the stadium to reduce costs and manage peak demand during games.

The plan also incorporated an EV Charging System where the charging operation is managed around day peak demand.

The success of this project has led the English Premiere League to look at implementing similar Distributed Energy Resource microgrid solutions for all of its stadiums in an effort to reduce costs and decarbonize the world’s most popular football league.

Project Results

  1. The system dramatically reduced peak demand charges during the hours of play (where up to 70,000 people were in attendance) leveraging our battery and advanced control systems. This equates to tremendous economic savings and power resiliency.
  2. The battery and controls also allowed for EV charging during the matches, designed around the peak demand reduction.
  3. Lastly, the full system integration allowed the stadium to leverage existing backup generators (typically used only for match play) to sell power back to the grid (and provide grid-side services) creating new revenue streams.

Game Day demand impact to the municipal grid is virtually eliminated while reducing energy costs to Tottenham Hotspur by more than 40%. On top of that, the release of toxic Green House Gas emissions is also cut by more than half.
