I’m always glad to see new activities taking place in lower Manhattan. And given that I focus heavily on sustainable ICT, I’m equally pleased to see that the new World Trade Center will become a model for urban energy efficiency.
EarthTechling has reprinted an article by Ali Levine that details how the new World Trade Center buildings are expected to be at least 20% more energy efficient than New York City’s current energy code requirement.
Check out all the energy saving features by reading Levine’s article here and see more renderings of the new World Trade Center complex at WTC.org.
