Oxford United Football Club have unveiled their plans to build an all-electric stadium in the UK. 

The proposed venue at the Triangle near Kidlington, Oxford, with a 16,000-capacity, is said to become the UK’s first all-electric football stadium. 

It aims to operate solely on electricity and power generated by low-carbon energy sources, including solar panels. 

Approximately 3,000m² of solar panels are intended to be installed on the stadium’s roof. 

Design elements such as modern building fabric and heat recovery systems will be used to enhance thermal efficiency at the property.

The stadium will also use air-source heat pumps, which are anticipated to reduce carbon dioxide emissions annually by an estimated 80%.

Additionally, it will include water conservation measures such as rain storage and recycling systems to reuse rainwater. 

A building energy management system (BEMS), which is completely automated, will be implemented to monitor and optimise energy use throughout the year. 

Oxford United development director Jon Clarke said: “The stadium design has sustainability and visitor experience at its core. We’ve maximised modern technology, design and progressive thinking to create the benchmark for future design of stadiums with the protection of our planet in firm focus. 

“By avoiding natural gas usage on site and by using highly efficient equipment to serve a high-quality building, the carbon emissions associated with this unique venue will be radically reduced resulting in a very low-impact home.” 

The club aim to reduce their carbon emissions by 50% by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2040.
