The football club of Wolfaartsdijk, a village in the province of Zeeland, developed a master plan to make the club energy self-sufficient and climate neutral by 2020. As part of the plan, the club installed 54 PV panels and a revolutionary ‘4D boarding’ system. The 4D boarding is installed along the playing field edge and has rotating panels. During the football matches the boarding displays commercial messages from the sponsors who funded the PV panels. After the match the panels transform into PV panels which face towards the sun. The prominent positioning of the PV panels helps to raise awareness about sustainable energy amongst the club's members and supporters and has stimulated many to install PV panels on the roofs of their own homes.
