WORLD'S FIRST SOLAR POWERED
STADIUM IN TAIWAN
Taiwan recently finished construction on a solar-powered stadium that will generate 100% of its electricity from photovoltaic technology Designed by Toyo Ito, the 50,000-seat arena will officially open later this year to welcome the 2009 World Games which features many sports not included in the Olympics Such as parachuting, tenpin bowling and rugby sevens.
Toyo Ito’s design has a 14,155 sq metre solar roof that is able to provide enough energy to power the stadium’s 3,300 lights and two jumbo vision screens. Its dragonesque roof is covered by 8'844 solar panels, ready to supply the enormous record-breaking building with clean power.
It has incredible 14,155m2 roof which could potentially generate 1.14 gigawatt hours of electricity every year; enough electricity to power up to 80% of the surrounding neighbourhood after being fed into the grid on the days when the stadium is unused.
A couple of years ago, we wrote about a 1.3 megawatt solar-powered stadium in Switzerland. A new solar powered stadium has been built in Taiwan for the 2009 World Games in July. Designed by Japanese architect Toyo Ito, the stadium incorporates 8,844 solar panels on the roof. The roof will generate enough energy to power the building’s 3,300 lights and two giant television screens.
On hot days, the stadium will generate more power than it needs, so the Taiwanese government plans to sell the excess capacity. A Taiwanese official said that the panels will generate 1.14 million KWh per year, preventing 660 tons of annual carbon dioxide.
The power system was tested in January. It took over six minutes to power up the lighting in the stadium, which illuminates the track and field with 3300 lux.
The stadium has a some other green features — permeable pavement is used throughout the complex, and all the raw materials used in the main stadium are reusable and made in Taiwan.
