Solarization of the OL Vallée Project with Reservoir Sun and ENGIE


The solarization of the OL Valley Project is entrusted this Friday, January 8, 2021 to the company ReservoirSun. The objective of this partnership is to produce clean electricity to supply part of the OL Group’s facilities. Here, solar self-consumption is at the heart of the project.

Solarization of the OL Vallée Project an infrastructure related to sports

A large-scale solar power plant

The solarization of certain buildings is entrusted to Reservoir Sun, a specialist in solar electric self-consumption, resulting from an alliance between ENGIE and Yellow Green. With this project, the group affirms its commitment to sustainable development.

The ambition of this new pole is to offer facilities for sports and leisure activities. Installed on a 50-hectare site, it should welcome several million visitors per year by 2024. In addition, OL Vallée will include facilities for the Olympique Lyonnais team and a training center created by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

The implementation of different photovoltaic solutions

Photovoltaic panels will be installed on the roof of two infrastructures. The locations concerned are the Olympique Lyonnais training center and the future Arena dedicated to the organization of sports and cultural events. In addition, a solar roof will be built on the future sports complex dedicated to high-level tennis.

The partnership also includes the solarization of the Groupama Stadium parking lots. On the one hand, they will be covered by solar shades. In addition, charging stations for electric vehicles will be installed.

The OL Valley Project will enable decarbonized energy production

The solar devices will have an installed capacity of approximately 10 MW.

The area covered by the photovoltaic installations will be 50,000 m², which represents 7 soccer fields. In fact, the production of electricity will correspond to the equivalent of the annual energy consumption of 2500 homes.

Solar self-consumption: the challenge of the project

The solar energy generated will meet part of the needs of the Groupama Stadium and the Arena. A project made possible by the self-consumption of solar energy, the flagship technology of the company Reservoir Sun. In the long run, it is estimated that this will save 164 tons of CO² per year.

In short, this partnership honors the use of clean energy in the sports and event industry. Currently, building new infrastructures that take into account the climate emergency seems essential. In this sense, we can hope that this project will encourage other companies to commit to renewable energy.
