TAIPEI 101, World’s Greenest Skyscraper

 

TAIPEI 101, one of the world’s tallest buildings, is also now the world’s greenest skyscraper. The 1,667-foot (508-meter) tower in Taipei has earned the US Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Platinum certification, the highest level for energy efficiency and environmental design.

Working in partnership with EcoTech International and Steven Leach Associates, Siemens‘ building technologies division helped TAIPEI 101?s operators maximize the skyscraper’s green features. Over the past two years, TAIPEI 101?s building automation and energy efficiency were optimized to achieve a 10% saving in electricity usage, water consumption and garbage production. As a result, the tower’s energy consumption is 30 percent lower in comparison to that of an average building, which helps reduce energy costs by some $700,000 a year.
