Solar power became even more fashionable at this past J Summer Fashion Show. via breaking energy
The world’s first solar powered catwalk – the J Summer Fashion Show 2015 – took place last Friday evening, July 17th, at the Gemasolar plant outside Sevilla in southern Spain. Jessica Minh Anh transformed the award-winning solar power plant, Gemasolar, into the world’s newest catwalk combing combining art, architecture, culture and fashion in her latest distinct catwalk show.
The show was powered by solar panels from the Gemasolar plant generating electricity to light the catwalk and surrounding infrastructure, meaning the show was entirely supported by renewable energy. With a rated electrical power of 19.9 MW in a 185 hectare solar field, the plant’s heat storage system allows the molten salt storage tank to create independent electrical generation for up to 15 hours without any solar feed. This innovative solar technology is a leading model for the entire industry.
