Glasgow in Scotland is preparing to host the Commonwealth Games at the end of July and is making full use of on-site power technologies.

The site, which will house 6,500 athletes and officials, will have hot water and heating for the homes provided by a central combined heat and power plant. The homes will be let or sold after the Glasgow Games.

The plant will also supply a 120-bed care home on the site and the adjacent Emirates Arena and Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.

In addition there are also solar panels on their roofs.

ICE Scotland director Sara Thiam said: “The Games have provided a fantastic showcase of engineering talent in Scotland and we hope the map will be an excellent tool for schools to encourage the next generation of engineers.”
