New Waterfront is greener than green
Stockholm Waterfront Congress Centre is not only cleverly placed - its also cleverly built and cleverly environmental.
- It's more than twice as energy efficient as the EU standard "Green Building"
- The glass facades are 1 040 m2 solar collectors that on average gather 1 MW of heat energy on a daily basis. this is equivalent to 90 000 normal low energy bulbs.
- The building is cooled by water drawn from the lake, stored in 250 tonne of ice tanks in the basement.
- About 20 000 m2 of material has been reused from the building brevisously occupying the site.
