Alfen to supply off-grid energy storage system to Ibogem in Belgium

24/09/2018

Ibogem, a Belgian intermunicipal cooperation, selected Alfen to supply an energy storage system for its site in Beveren. The storage system will enable Ibogem to power its forklift trucks with solar energy that is generated during the day from its rooftop solar PV installation.

Wim Beeldens, General Director at Ibogem comments: "Our company focusses on the collection and processing of household waste, we run several recycling shops and we own a green composting site. This storage system ideally fits our company's vision, as it will help us to increase the self-consumption of solar energy. Over time we also consider to add wind energy to our portfolio to further facilitate energy self-sufficiency, also in the winter periods."
