Energy storage project at Roompot

Elfa is currently actively involved in an energy storage project at Roompot. An energy storage system is being installed for as many as 85 holiday homes.

Elfa is currently busy with an energy storage project at Roompot. We are in fact going to supply an energy storage system for as many as 85 holiday homes there. Each holiday home will be fitted with an average of six solar panels, totalling 153,000 Wp. Roompot is therefore the end customer of this project.


Energy storage system


However, our client is Spie. They are responsible for the groundwork, such as pulling cables to the holiday homes and installing charging poles in car parks. During the project, Spie enlisted the help of Elfa.


Elfa is responsible for supervising the project, as well as inspecting the final installation. Olaf Bitter, technical account manager at Elfa, supervises this project.


Energy storage system for Roompot


We are very happy with the pleasant cooperation with Spie. As a result, we now have several similar projects with Spie.


Wednesday 3 May was an important day for the Roompot project. That was when the FAT (Factory Acceptance Test) was taken. Apart from some minor points of improvement, we will install the energy storage system on site at Roompot in May. We are already looking forward to this important moment in the project.


Stay tuned!

Seto XPECT2 LED-Lens-Module

To test the extreme performance of the Seto LED modules, Setolite immersed one of the modules in boiling water during an experiment.


To test the extreme performance of the Seto LED modules, Setolite immersed one of the modules in boiling water during an experiment. For this purpose, an induction plate is used that is set to the highest temperature level.


The XPECT2 LEDs operate at 220-240V when fully submerged. Even though the temperature of the water rises to 100°C, the SETO XPECT2 lens module continues to do its job perfectly!


The LED module stays on continuously when immersed in boiling water. Even when the module is immersed alternately in cold and boiling water it continues to work 100% without damage.


Watch the video below demonstrating that the SETO XPECT2 LED lens module is waterproof and temperature resistant, even under the most extreme conditions!

Elfa now also 100% CO2 neutral

Elfa joins Trees for All and compensates all its CO2 emissions for a cleaner and healthier climate.


Elfa is already energy neutral and now also 100% CO2 neutral.

Elfa takes its responsibility to contribute to a cleaner environment and a healthy living environment for future generations.


Therefore, Elfa has entered into a partnership with the foundation: Trees for All.

Trees For All is committed to a healthier climate, restoration of nature and biodiversity, and improving living conditions by planting and restoring forests worldwide.

With this partnership, we will compensate every ton of CO2 emitted.














How does carbon offsetting for a healthier climate actually work?

Trees extract CO2 from the sky and store carbon in the trunk, branches and roots. This storage can be converted into CO2 rights or ‘carbon credits’. One carbon credit is equivalent to one ton of CO2.


We are looking forward to the results!

Elfa invests in logistics facilities

Last week, two employees from the company Logistore stopped by to install the new "Masterdata Toolkit" and provide training for the logistics and content departments.


Companies and organizations today are constantly evolving and are increasingly influenced by, among other things, digitalization. Optimizing operational processes is a goal we continually strive for, as is increasing our productivity. The idea is to work smarter and more efficiently.


That is why, among other things, Elfa is investing in their logistics facilities by using a measuring, weighing and scanning system from Logistore. Using the ‘Masterdata Toolkit’ we receive the dimensions, weight, barcodes and other product data of our assortment digitally All the data needed to guide the item through all the logistics processes smarter, faster, error-free and sustainable.


Watch the demonstration video below:


After manually putting in our own article number, the digital measuring tape scans the product’s barcode so that the measurement results can be linked to the unique product.

When the item is placed on the digital scale, you will first scan the item using the digital tape measure.

Like the well-known tape measure, the digital tape measure works with an extendable tape printed with bar codes.


When measuring the length, width and height, the barcode scanner reads the distance corresponding to the length drawn.

These dimensions are immediately stored in the correct location in the system.


In this same platform, the weight of the article is processed with just one push on the button.

This data is stored in a directory for further processing by the content department.
