Solar Panels Generate Energy for a High Speed Train

High-speed international trains,which runs between linking Paris and Amsterdam, the first in Europe use electricity generated by solar panels.The 3.6-kilometer tunnel crossing Antwerp, in northern Belgium, is fitted with 16,000 solar panels covering 50,000 square meters. The panels produce 3,300 megawatts of electricity per hour.According to Steven De Tollenaere, head of project developers Enfinity, during use electricity, the energy losses and transport costs are excluded.
