Middelburg historic building Zeeland Concert Hall powered by Solar PV
Harvest solar PV electricity without affecting the esthetical appearance in a historical city.
The Zeeland Concert Hall in Middelburg is located in an old warehouse from the 18th century and has been a very important link in Zeeland musical life for more than a century. Numerous concerts and other activities are organized here.
Over time, the building has not only served as a concert space. For example, it served as a shelter for Belgian refugees during the First World War. Later even as a shelter for soldiers and as a warehouse.
64 solar panels and a battery for energy storage have been installed on the roof of Zeeland Concert Hall. Energy is mainly used in the evening hours and in the autumn and winter season when the sun is not shining. Therefore, a battery for storage is provided here. Monitoring takes place in close cooperation with KU Leuven technology campus in Ghent.
