While understandably the retractable pitch and the pint glasses that fill from the bottom have attracted much of the attention, the new £1 billion Spurs ground also boasts a state-of-the-art energy management system. 

Schneider Electric is the Official Stadium Energy Management Supplier to the new stadium in North London, distributing all of its power supply and integrating key energy management systems.

These will play a key role in delivering energy and operational efficiencies, supporting the Club’s vision of delivering the ultimate experience for every visitor to its new world-class stadium, claims Schneider Electric. 

Just how do they fill glasses from the bottom at new £1 billion Tottenham stadium?

Schneider Electric has embedded its EcoStruxure™ platform to provide real-time monitoring for preventative maintenance and personalise visitor experiences, including integrating aspects such as temperature and lighting conditions. 

The stadium’s electrical infrastructure will be monitored constantly from Schneider Electric’s remote field services bureau with its Building Analytics software performing system checks every five minutes, totalling 60,000 checks every hour on-site. Schneider Electric experts will also be on-site to personally monitor the stadium’s power infrastructure on match days and in the build-up to any special events. 

Says David Hall, VP Power Systems, Schneider Electric UK & Ireland:

“We are excited to have partnered with Tottenham Hotspur to create and help manage one of the finest stadiums in the world – for fans, visitors and the wider community. We are supporting the delivery of a best-in-class energy management system to power what is one of the most technologically advanced entertainment venues in the world.

“Today, this state-of-art stadium is a prime example of how the stresses associated with hosting and attending live events can be alleviated through digitisation and automation. The venue boasts a next generation customer experience for sports fans, visitors and the wider community that can only be achieved with the latest technology.” 

Tottenham Hotspur’s stunning new stadium has been designed from the outset as a state-of-the art, multi-use venue, including a structurally engineered fully retractable pitch. The first for any stadium in the UK, this will ensure that the football-playing surface is always in peak condition.

Underneath the grass field is a synthetic grass surface that will be used for NFL games and other events, creating a new world-class sports and entertainment venue for the capital. Designed for atmosphere, the venue aims to deliver an unrivalled fan experience inside the 62,062 seater stadium, the largest of any football club in London.
