Self-consumption on Photovoltaic Canopy and Recharging Points on the Benahavís Golf Course

Bettergy has been commissioned to carry out the installation of recharging points and photovoltaic installation in the luxury resort located in Benahavís, Marbella.

The golf course is located in a privileged area facing the Mediterranean coast and surrounded by stunning mountain scenery. It is only 10 minutes away from Marbella and its exclusive leisure activities.

The aim of this project is to reduce the carbon footprint and avoid the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The improvement of the facilities will increase energy savings and efficiency and promote energy self-consumption from renewable energy sources.

The installation consists of 276 photovoltaic modules of monocrystalline silicon cells (half cell), with a maximum unit power of 400 Wp.

The total peak power of the PV system will be 110.4 kWp and will consist of 2 inverters of 60 kW and 40 kW.

As a result of the boom in the use of electric vehicles and with the intention of promoting this type of vehicle with low levels of pollution, it was decided to install four recharging points with one outlet each in the parking lot of the resort’s restaurant.

These charging points have a power of 22 kW and 7.4 kW, with 1 outlet each.

These charging points are equipped with RFID readers, which allow them to be activated only by cards for use by both employees and customers.

Monitoring system: Energy Sequence

The photovoltaic installation will be monitored through the Energy Sequence platform, being able to configure alerts and detect behavioral profiles.

In this application, the main parameters of the photovoltaic plant and its interaction with the rest of the energy consumption of the installation are displayed, cross-referenced with the existing environmental conditions.

In addition to the visualization by the Energy Sequence platform, the inverters and the monitoring equipment allow to follow the production of the installation through the “ShinePhone” application.

Environmental Factors

One of the determining factors to achieve the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere is based on the substitution of the current means of transport whose energy in most cases is obtained from fossil fuels by a transport network in which energy consumption can come from renewable sources.

To this end, existing infrastructures must be adapted as far as possible to facilitate the transition from a transport system based on fossil fuels to a transport system based on renewable energies.

In this case, the installation of a recharging point for electric vehicles contributes to the improvement of existing infrastructures for this type of vehicles that reduce carbon dioxide emissions and to promote the development of this type of technologies necessary to tackle climate change.

  • Savings in CO2 emissions: 140,522.45 Kg CO2/year.
  • Energy savings: 193,158 kWh/year

Bettergy continues its development work in these projects, betting on a complete turnkey integration for its clients, digitizing and supplying and installing the equipment, providing its experience in energy project engineering, and at the same time managing the different available subsidies.
