Kyocera to power The Hague stadium

Japan’s Kyocera will install 2,900 PV modules on the soccer stadium in The Hague later this year in what will be one of the biggest building-based solar deployments in the Netherlands.

The 725kW installation will be built this summer after the end of the Hockey World Cup, which is set to take place at the stadium.

The Hague wants to become carbon-neutral by 2040 and the stadium project will allow CO2 emissions to be reduced by up to 272 tonnes per year, said Kyoto-based Kyocera.
