New generation stadium designers go green
By Paul Kelso, Chief Sports Reporter
When the World Games opened in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, in July they did so in a stadium that may point the way forward for arena design. The stadium roof is covered by 8,884 solar panels, the “scales” on the snake’s back, which generate 100 per cent of its power. When the stadium is not in use the power is sold back to the local grid and can meet 80 per cent of the local area’s energy needs.
