Gallery: Gorgeous Green Energy Park for Korea Electric Power Corporatio...

 

This gorgeous “Green Energy Theme Park” was designed by H Associates for the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), which held a contest to design their new Naju, South Korea headquarters. H Associates went all out with sloping green roofs, integrated solar power, a wind field, geothermal power, water reclamation and a whole host of other green features. The 29-story tower that emerges from the center of the park is a beacon of green design.

H Associatesdesign for the headquarters came in third in the international competition — but first in sustainability in our eyes. They designed the KEPCO complex to create a deeper awareness of life’s energy cycle. The sprawling green roofs blend the complex into the surrounding landscape while creating beautiful vistas from the solar/geothermal/wind powered skyscraper — instead of views of concrete and brick as most skyscrapers have.

H Associates spared no green feature in the design of this building and we think it’s the perfect mixture of open space and high-tech technology. By creating a series of low lying surrounding buildings they allowed the skyscraper and it’s 120,000 square meters of office space to make the most use of natural light. The building’s façade is specially designed to control temperatures while using as much natural day lighting as possible. Even the inside of the building is full of nature — a high reaching atrium greets visitors when they enter. This building surely would have helped KEPCO reach their goal of becoming the Green Energy leader among the worlds many utility companies.

    Dear Chairman, CEO, President:

    We would like you to sponsor, partially or in full, the construction of our first long range EV prototype, an automobile that will travel 500+ miles with vehicle to grid capabilities and represents an advanced electro-automotive technology.

    The invention is the first attempt at solving the problem of range for EVs and EV-related technologies. Our invention addresses gaps in EV technology and applies to all forms of transport, including rail, road (buses, long haul), river boats, and light aircraft. It is an absolute zero carbon emission because it is based on Self-Generating Power Technology or Energy-On-The-Move, an innovative method of advanced, continuous regeneration, something that has never been used or heard of before and that taps unexplored areas that have never been touched previously. The technology will borrow techniques and methods applied in the aviation industry with advanced electronics to execute a multi-function operation, similar to the biggest possible orchestra, with many instruments to balance and tune together. Sophisticated electronics and complex wiring are the most crucial elements in the overall design and execution.

    In addition to engraving your name or the name of your company/ organization on our electric car, you will benefit from new strategic options and the potential of increased diversification in products and innovations. It is a win/win situation for economic and environmental objectives by reinforcing the sharp CO2 reduction achieved by Graviton Dynamics’ best CO2 neutral developments and inventions.

    Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,

    Mr. Stéphane De Roche,
    Inventor, Managing Director,
    MBA, BSc; Bacc. Sc; IIfET
