World's First Solar Power Stadium

Brazil opens first solar-powered stadium ahead of 2014 World Cup.

This splendor looking stadium is the first in the world to provide all its own electricity using the solar power. The horse shoe-shaped structure in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, has been built for the World Games which will take place in the city in July. It is the first stadium to use only solar power technology for all its electricity.

A Taiwanese official said the panels will generate 1.14 million kWh of electricity per year, preventing 660 tons of annual carbon dioxide from being pumped into the atmosphere from traditional power stations.

It is very innovative project

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.

As preparations for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil hit the final stretch, the first of many solar-powered stadiums being used for next year’s tournament was recently put in the spotlight with an inauguration event.
