Off-grid installation "Curringherveld".


In the nature reserve "Curringherveld" nearby "Kornhorn" (state Groningen, the Netherlands), the beautiful wooden shed "Curringherschuur" is build by volunteers.

Because of the remote location of the shed there is no grid connection. Electricity is needed however, because groups of children from schools use the shed for nature education and all kinds of meetings are organized, such as presentations, business meetings, weddings, etc. So, the required electricity is being generated by solar panels.

These solar panels are transparant, so that light (and warmth in winter) can enter the building.

The electricity generated by the solar panels is used for fridge, cooker, coffee machine, lights, waterpump, charging of battery powered gardening tools, etc.

For storage of the solar energy, New Energy.Today installs an een E-rack from MG Energy Systems with a capacity of 15 kWh.

A 10 kW Victron Quattro transfers the energy from the batteries to 230v AC for the building.

A Victron Color Control controls and monitors the installation. A router with a 4G connection offers the possibility to monitor and control the system online.



We do this project in close collaboration with the employer and suppliers:


- Stichting Curringherveld (employer)


- Top Systems BV (supply of materials)


- Victron Energy (all electronics)


- MG Energy Systems (E-rack Lithium batteries)



Energy Storage system on a boat.


At the stern of a catamaran (the Lagoon 445 "Horizon"), the owners have installed 5 large solar panels with a total peak power of 1700 W. Special about these panels is that they are transparant (solar cells on clear glass). Because of this, they generate energy also on the bottom side: sunlight reflecting from the surface of the water generetes enrgy on the bottom side. This increases the yield by 20%.


To store this energy for self consumption we install an energy storage system with a capacity of 7,5 kWh and an inverter power of 3 kW at 230 volts in the boat. We choose to do this with minimal modifications to the existing electrical on the boat: the inverter actually replaces the shore power input.


The owners Gilles and Laura sail for 3 months in the summer of 2020 in Denmark and they are fully self-supporting with this system. There is even an energy surplus, even if they use about 10 kWh per day (an average house uses about 8 kwh per day).


We do this in close collaboration with the owners and suppliers:


- Combinoord BV (supply of all materials)


- Victron Energy (all electronics)


- MG Energy Systems (Lithium batteries and battery management)

Slideshow of the various fases of the intallation.

The solar yield is huge. Everyday at around noon we see a yield of more than 1 kW and even in august we see peak power (1700 W) sometimes. In july, they even reached 1900 W!


Test site for battery systems from the real estate department of the Dutch government.


The Dutch government wants to do research for the best system to store solar energy from governement buildings for self consumption.


That's why a test room for 5 battery systems is created at the former marine airport near Leiden. NewEnergy.Today installs all Victron equipment and does the commissioning of these systems.


We do this in close collaboration with the employer and suppliers:


- StoredEnergy (employer)


- Top Systems BV (supply of materials)


- Victron Energy (all electronics)


- Redox Storage Solutions (Flow battery)


- Bluesky Energy (Greenrock saltwater battery)


- Time Shift Energy storage (LG, BYD and TimeShift batteries)


Large Energy Storage installation.


At both sides of the roof of a large house, the owner has placed 160 big solar panels. A total peak power of over 50 kW.


To self-consume this enrgy as much as possible, we install an energy storage system with a capacity of 120 kWh and an inverter power of 30 kW (3x 10 kW 3-fase) in the technical room of the house.

We do this in close collaboration with the owners and suppliers:


- Combinoord BV (supply of materials)


- Victron Energy (all electronics)


- MG Energy Systems (Lithium batteries and battery management)


- Installatiebedrijf Hoekstra (Connection to the house and the grid)

Slideshow of the various fases of the installation.

After a brief period of adjusting we reach a setting where the consumption comes either directly from the solar panels, either from the batteries (when there is no sunshine). The surplus of energy is being fed back to the grid.

Large Off-grid installation.


On the roof of a big shed next to a house in the country, the owner placed 77 big (330Wp) solar panels. A total of 25 kW peak power. The owner wants to be fully off-grid and has no grid connection.


We take care of the enigineering and the installing of all technology in the shed. The energy supply of the house.

We do this in close cooperation with the client and suppliers:


- Van Riessen duurzame installatiechniek BV (Client)


- Combinoord BV (supply of materials)


- Victron Energy (all electronics)


- MG Energy Systems (Lithium batteries and battery management)


For NewEnergy.Today this project runs from the calculations and design of the electrical system in august 2019 to the commisioning in december 2019.

Slideshow of the various stages of the installation.

In the early morning of the day of the commisioning there is a faint december sun.

At that time, the batteries al being charged with over 3 kW already. This is promising; it is important that there is enough energy in the months december and january for the (-sparingly-) household. The rest of the year there will be no problem; then we'll have a huge energy surplus. The next step in this project is to decide how we will store that! Maybe producing Hydrogen! We keep you informed...

For Besla BV we cooperate in building the prototype of the Besla 1100.


This is a super luxurous motor yacht driven by 2 electric motors.


We take care of engineering all technical systems and the fysical installation of all technology in the engine room. The entire energy supply and propulsion, as well as the state of the art controls of all systems ("Glass bridge"). Everything under CE class C (coastal waters and adjacent lakes up untill wind force 6 and waveheight 2m).

We do this in close cooperation with client, designers and suppliers:


- Friesdec BV (Client)


- Radar Scheepsexperts (CE certification)


- Vripack Yacht Design (Design)


- Victron Energy (All electrical systems)


- MG Energy Systems (Lithium batteries en battery management)
