West Croydon station in South London, UK, is one of 26 railway stations around the city to become home to an 'Energy Garden'. These installations include planters with plants, flowers, ferns, and s0lar panels. 

Energy Garden’s first solar co-operative aims to generate solar power using PV arrays on train depots – creating an intersection between biodiversity and energy by using vacant spaces in transport infrastructure. In our next issue, we explore the project, looking at the consequences of broader adoption.
