Singapore’s Solar-Powered Supertrees


As CNN reported on the supertrees, “Ranging in height from 25 to 50 metres, the Gardens’ 18 Supertrees are basically vertical gardens covered in bromeliads, ferns and tropical flowering climbers. Two of the trees are connected via an aerial walkway. It’s pretty innovative stuff. The structures mimic the ecological functions of real trees through their environmentally sustainable features. Some have photovoltaic cells on their canopies to harvest solar energy to light up at night, others are integrated with cooled conservatories and serve as air exhaust receptacles.” The opening is being celebrated in the coming weeks with a live concert by Grammy Award-winning singer Jason Mraz, carnivals, a green fair, an outdoor movie under the stars and a specially choreographed light and sound show at the Supertree Grove
