Singapore Sports Hub To Install Solar Panels On Stadium Roof
Published October 22, 2013
The Singapore Sports Hub "will use solar energy to meet some of its electricity needs," according to David Ee of the STRAITS TIMES. Solar panels "will be installed on the new National Stadium's roof across an area of approximately" 7,000 square meters. These will generate 707 kilowatts-peak (kWp) of electricity -- "enough to offset the energy used by the cooling system at the 55,000-seat National Stadium in Kallang, which is expected to be completed by April." The panels "will be constructed by solar energy company Phoenix Solar." It has signed a 21-year solar energy purchase agreement with the Sports Hub, "ensuring that the arena will have stable electricity prices throughout that period." Singapore Sports Hub CEO Philippe Collin Delavaud said opting for solar energy was "just the beginning" of the arena's plan to integrate "innovative technologies" into its operations (STRAITS TIMES, 10/19).
