The Johan Cruijff Arena in Amsterdam is now home to the EU’s largest battery storage system! It can store up to 2.8MWh of electricity, using 4,200 solar panels and batteries provided by Nissan.

It really frustrates me the UK is so behind on stuff such as this. Do not get me started on internet haha. But it appears European countries ex UK are actually making an effort with sustainable energy. Pick up the pace ENGLAND! Actually, Scotland seem to be doing a better job then England. So yeah, Hurry up ENGLAND!
