I like to hear about people who are living out solutions! I just read about a giant building that seems to be a great manager of resources. It is being built in the new Masdar City in the United Arab Emirates via a project called “The Masdar Initiative.”
Here is the article at Metaefficient.com:
The Masdar Headquarters building will produce more power than it needs (an energy positive building). In fact, the solar roof (one of the largest in the world) will be constructed first, and it will power the construction of the rest of the building.
