While in Las Vegas three poles with solar panels, however iconic, seem to be a big deal, London is going for the real stuff. Today Network Rail, which provides Britain’s rail infrastructure, opened the largest solar bridge in the world. Stretching across the river Thames, it boasts 4,400 solar panels, and will provide half the energy to central London’s Blackfriars train station. Blackfriars solar bridge is expected to cut the stations’ carbon emissions by an estimated 511 tonnes a year.
