The World Games 2009, to be held in the southwestern Taiwanese city of Kaohsiung, will be using a solar-powered Main Stadium. 8,844 solar panels were installed on the 40,000-capacity structure designed by world-renowned Japanese architect Toyo Ito. Construction took two years and was without any accidents.

Lighting up the stadium took only six minutes during a testing last January 15. The whole track and field was illuminated with 3,300 lux. Surround sound system will be used and two jumbotron screens will also be on each side of the stadium. The said features will be powered by the stadium’s solar roof, which can generate 1.14 million kilowatt hours of electricity annually. This means the reduction of 660 tons of carbon emissions. Construction of the stadium also used raw materials that are 100% reusable and Taiwan-made.

Surplus energy produced by the stadium’s solar electricity system will be sold during the non-game period.
Another energy efficient feature of the stadium is its open c-shape design. The design makes use of the main spectator stand as a shield for the field from sunlight, the southwestern summer wind and the northwestern winter wind. These features are expected to give stadium users more comfort.

A green zone will also be incorporated in the stadium’s 19-hectare scope. The said feature will include sport parks, bicycle paths, ecological ponds, and vegetation. This aims to give visitors the experience of a natural environment.
