Delft Campus station energy-neutral

Delft Campus station energy-neutral



The first energy-neutral railway station in the Netherlands, Delft Campus, has been officially in use since Monday 20 December. The 810 solar panels on the roof are to generate as much energy as the station consumes: an average of 187 megawatt hours per year. According to the municipality, this equals the annual consumption of 68 households.


To reduce energy consumption, LED lamps have been installed throughout. It should be noted, however, that the four newly installed lifts will lead to a higher energy consumption. On the other hand, the solar panels provide for this and the station is now easily accessible for everyone.
