Gebouw in Londen genereert eigen energie

Met eigen windturbines voorziet dit gebouw in een deel van zijn energiebehoefte:

A key component of the design was to exceed the Mayor’s target for on-site sources of renewable energy. Conceiving of the energy producing/saving mechanics of the building as an integral part of the design was a challenging process, requiring the design team to investigate how the height and form of the building could best harness the wind energy at that location. The resulting form of the plan ensures that the tower acts as an aerofoil, concentrating the greatest wind speed to the spine of the building, where four turbines will be attached vertically, in a spiral form that is as visually stunning as it is innovative.
