Q CELLS Completes First Photovoltaic Systems For Leading German Football Club RB Leipzig


Q CELLS, a total energy solutions provider in solar, energy storage, downstream project business and energy retail, has recently completed the installation of two photovoltaic systems for German Bundesliga football club RB Leipzig.

Having reached the last 16 of this season's UEFA Champions League, and a serious challenger for this year's Bundesliga title in Germany, RB Leipzig is also shining off the pitch. The football club will feed the sustainable energy generated by its 71.5 kWp Q.FLAT-G5 flat roof solar system atop the Red Bull Arena's administrational section completely into powering the stadium. Thus, the solar system from Q CELLS will support the UV light system to ensure that the sun continues to shine even if the actual playing field is cast in shadow.

The second solar system will deliver electricity to the operation of the modern RBL Football-Academy. The training facility is regarded as one of the most sophisticated in Europe and is used by both the first team and the youth teams of RB Leipzig.

“We are delighted to have completed the first two projects of this kind with our partner, Q CELLS,” emphasized Oliver Mintzlaff, CEO of RB Leipzig. “We as a club always strive to shape our partnerships holistically. That's why it was obvious for us to discuss the opportunities of producing and self-consuming solar electricity with Q CELLS. What convinced us in the end was the quality and performance of the complete solutions from Q CELLS.”

Maengyoon Kim, Head of Sales Europe at Q CELLS, added that he was delighted by the successful cooperation of the two partners. “RB Leipzig always aims for the utmost performance and success,” Yoon said. “First and foremost, in the UEFA Champions League and the Bundesliga of course, but also when it comes to infrastructure projects. Q CELLS is more than happy to support RB Leipzig with just that: peak-performing and tailor-made products infused with Q CELLS' solar DNA to achieve clean energy solutions.”
