Siemens, renewable energy

London Mayor Boris Johnson has topped out The Crystal, the Siemens centre for urban sustainability being built in London. Outstanding in its architectural and environmental features, Siemens is investing around 30 million in the building, which will serve as a conference and research centre and host interactive exhibitions showcasing infrastructure solutions that promise a higher quality of life in city environments. It is due for completion in Summer 2012.

The use of green technology makes the building an outstanding example of energy-efficient construction. It will be powered completely by renewable energy and harvest rainwater.
