The new Blackfriars station is on a bridge on the River Thames, London… and has been fitted with 4400 solar photovoltaic (PV) panels! These solar PV panels will generate half of the station’s energy needs and reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by 511 tons per year. The station has also been installed with a rain water harvesting system and sun pipes. Sun pipes introduce natural lighting into buildings, meaning that artificial lighting (which uses electricity) does not have to be used during the day. What an exemplary project!
