Solar spectacle

Taiwan's new solar stadium not only looks stunning, it's also a marvel of eco-engineering, being the world's first multifunctional stadium powered by solar energy. The 55,000-seat arena is covered in 8,844 solar panels that provide lighting for the track and will supply one million kilowatts of electricity a year.
