Eco Friendly Stadium

The World Games Stadium, in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, is powered by 8'844 solar panels decked across its 14,155m2 roof. It can hold 55'000 spectators, was designed by the Japanese architect Toyo Ito, and cost upwards of us$150m to build. It should 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.
