In the Urban Best Practice Area Bremen Case, this German city brought three gaining and management modes of advanced energy.

In the new Bremen Weser football, people will celebrate victory one after another, not only on football, but more on the achievements in the field of environmental protection.

Another highlight of Bremen case is the Weser football model, which shows people how a football field becomes energy sources.

When the old stadium was expanded, it chose a new path. On the top of the football field was installed 200,000 solar panels, so as to transform it into a solar power station. Furthermore, it also becomes Germany’s largest solar stadium that produces 800,000 kilowatts of solar energy each year.

Since the Weser football field became the “power station”, it reduces 500 tons of carbon dioxide emissions every year, which generates the electricity that can be used for 300 families.
