Some of the world’s best energy-positive buildings
Solar energy is top option for the world afraid to face the judgment day. Climate change is forcing developed as well as developing countries to use renewable source of energy. All major structures, machines, devices, and everything that requires electricity to operate is looking for alternate sources of energy other than grid-supply. Architectural structures including residential and commercial buildings suck a lot of electricity. Installation of solar panels help them cut their dependence on grid-supply as well as saves money on electricity bills.
There are many incredible buildings around the world that have come up solar-energy-based models to meet their energy requirements. Engadget posted a list of seven such buildings that generate more energy than they consume. We thought, we should share it with you.
