Gallery: World’s Greenest Building Going Up In Paris – Energy Plus

 

The home of the Eiffel Tower is getting a new architectural innovation- and a green one at that. The Energy Plus office building, to be located outside of Paris, is designed to consume no electricity other than that which it creates itself. This zero-energy building, according to the designers, will be the greenest office building ever created.

    For sure this sin’t the biggest PV array in the world and there are even more nice examples of positive energy buildings, like this Star: http://www.stichtingmilieunet.nl/andersbekekenblog/?p=1421

    And what to think about the Masdar Headquarters: http://www.stichtingmilieunet.nl/andersbekekenblog/?p=2651

    Also the world’s greenest building. There are so many the first. Doesn’t matter at all. What matters is that the world is changing to sustainable building, change to green buildings and change to energy-positive buildings.
    Then it is easy to plug in your car, like this Tesla Roadster (some call that even Sex on wheels).

    Too many superlatives, not enough facts.
    Why does everybody have to be the biggest, best greenest all the time ?
    And without any data to back up these claims I very much doubt this will be the biggest PV array in the world. There are systems rated at more than 10MW in existence.

    Architect of this concept gets 10 out of 10.

    16 kW per square meter should probably be 16 kW-HOURS per sqm, as in per year.

    That’s great! But I really hope it’s by an RATP or SNCF station, or it won’t be very green to get there.

    Very interesting shape. It looks like a huge version of an amazing oceanside home in Chiba (Japan) designed by Sou Fujimoto. I wonder about the insulation though… I see more windows than wall
