Welcome to the All Electric Society Park

Tomorrow’s sustainable world, today’s technologies
All Electric Society Park by Phoenix Contact

Experience, discover, and explore the future:

How reliable are renewable energy sources? Where do we get energy from when the sun is not shining and the wind is not blowing? Why are there different ways to charge an electric car? And how does the green electricity actually get into the car, a building, or production?

Our All Electric Society answers these and other exciting questions: Experience live with us in Blomberg how energy is generated, stored, and distributed and how energy consumption is optimized – and how all these areas relate to each other.

Energy storage
Our battery storage systems store excess renewable energy. This energy is used when the sun is not shining, when the wind is not blowing, and when the high energy consumption is high. The battery storage systems are integrated optimally into the power supply with reliable connection and automation technology.
Phoenix Contact provides the solutions for this
Energy storage
Power-to-X
This energy can be stored by converting electrical energy into hydrogen. The process is known as electrolysis. The stored energy can be used during times when it is not possible to generate renewable energy. Monitoring and automating processes are crucial for reliable operation.

Power-to-X
Thermodynamics center
The thermal power distribution system ensures that all buildings in the All Electric Society Park are supplied with heating and cooling. Here, we demonstrate the heating and cooling circuit and explain how we use an ice storage tank for heating. Intelligent building automation ensures optimum air conditioning.

Water and environment
A sustainable world needs more than just renewable energy. We also have to work with all of our valuable resources responsibly. To this end, we use automated and needs-based irrigation in the All Electric Society Park. We explain how this works here.

Water and environment
Wind power
The All Electric Society Park includes a real wind turbine nacelle. We use this to demonstrate just what a wind turbine generator has to endure during storms and snow. The systems are monitored to ensure that energy is generated reliably, even during bad weather. These monitoring systems make it possible to respond to any weather events in good time.

Wind power
Solar power
Solar power is the source of sustainable electricity in the All Electric Society Park. Solar panels are located on all roofs, on the facades of the pavilion, and even in the sidewalk. Solar power must be fed into the grid quickly and reliably if we are to succeed in the energy revolution.
These solutions from Phoenix Contact facilitate this
Solar power
Substation
The secondary substation makes the renewable energy available to the All Electric Society Park. Two transformers ensure that the frequency and voltage are correct. In the event of a failure, we would no longer have any energy. Secondary substations are monitored digitally so that any malfunctions can be detected and rectified quickly.

Substation
Power center
The electrical power distribution system ensures that the All Electric Society Park is supplied with power. The challenge is to keep the grid stable despite the decentral feed-in. Here, we demonstrate that the right balance between energy generation and its use is crucial for this.

E-mobility
E-mobility is an important component on the way to a sustainable future. Here, we demonstrate how the energy is fed into the electric car and how it does not always have to be used to drive the car. A powerful charging technology makes e-mobility suitable for everyday use.

E-mobility
The All Electric Society Pavilion
The All Electric Society Pavilion is the ideal starting point for your visit. Here, we explain our vision of the All Electric Society. Sector coupling is a key element in this. It creates an overall system of mobility, infrastructure, industry, and energy that only uses renewable energy.
Further information about the All Electric Society
The All Electric Society Pavilion

In our All Electric Society Park, we will introduce you to interactive stations that showcase the many ways renewable energy can be generated, converted, stored, distributed, and used. To do this, we use both self-generated green electricity and heat energy from heat pumps and conversion processes.

This is how we generate renewable electricity from the sun and wind. By using state-of-the-art battery and hydrogen synthesis systems, we can store the precious energy and thus have it available for a later time. We demonstrate the efficient use of this energy with specific and hands-on applications, using the examples of e-mobility, smart buildings, transport infrastructure, and production facilities. You will also learn how we can work together to use the precious resource of water sustainably.
You will find all these exciting subjects in large, transparent cubes spread throughout the site. Our interactive, self-explanatory glass cubes are designed to invite you to participate and discover.

Let yourself be drawn into the exciting world of energy and learn about the technical possibilities that already exist today to solve the major tasks of tomorrow and shape our world so that it will be more livable and sustainable for all of us in the future.
In the All Electric Society Pavilion, you can learn more about this vision of the future and how our All Electric Society Park is a small-scale representation of this grand idea. We are convinced that, in addition to the commitment of all of us, the key to a sustainable world lies in technical solutions for industry and society.

What is the All Electric Society?

In the All Electric Society, only renewably-generated electrical energy is used. However, these sustainable actions do not automatically mean doing without. Instead, it is a matter of using existing resources optimally and making them available equally to everyone in the world.
This is made possible by sector coupling: the linking of all relevant areas of life and work – mobility, energy, infrastructure, and industry – to form one system. In this system, the energy is distributed automatically in accordance with demand. This ensures that it is always available where it is needed.

A great idea for the future, in a compact size

It is a little larger than a soccer field. As the park’s centerpiece, the All Electric Society Pavilion shows what the All Electric Society means at Phoenix Contact and how sector coupling helps optimize the flow of renewable energy.

Walk-in wind turbine nacelle in the AES Park

It ensures that a wind turbine generator is operated at a lofty height: the wind turbine nacelle. Usually this sensitive area is accessible only for specialists, but in our park you not only have the chance to get a close look at the machine room. You can also to enter it.

Interactive glass cubes around the site make experiencing the All Electric Society topics an enjoyable adventure. All cubes are intelligently networked with each other. This means that you can always tell how much energy is available and where it is needed.

Around 550 solar panels throughout the All Electric Society Park provide it with a complete supply of renewable energy. In addition to roof panels and solar panels integrated into windows, there are 26 m² of walkable solar paving integrated into the sidewalks.

AES Park components

Connect everything together in the All Electric Society Park. Here, electricity flows through cables that have a total length of 7 km. The other 12 km of cables are needed for data connections.

Why you should not miss the All Electric Society Park.

  • Because real applications let you experience how we will create the energy revolution together
