The United Nations Climate Change Conference (or COP15) is about to take place in Copenhagen, so it's no wonder that the city is incorporating eco-friendly elements into its urban landscape.

On the footsteps of Copenhagen's pedal-powered city hall Christmas tree are special solar-powered street lamps that will light the way to the United Nations Climate Change Conference. The lamps are architecture firm 3XN's 'Gotham' luminaires. Seven of these solar-powered LED lights—which produce more energy than they use—will be installed at the Bella Center where the conference will take place.
