Renewable Energy Generation

Thermal-solar tubes

The PSES Building makes optimal use of renewable energy production facilities:

 

  • Thermal-solar tubes. On the EcoWall, positioned in the sun-exposed southern façade, thermal-solar tubes were installed to absorb the sun's radiation and heat water, which activates the entire building's air-conditioning system. This way, the PSES Building's AC system does not rely on the national electricity grid at all.
  • Wind turbines. Wind turbines are located on the roof of the PSES Building, generating 3 kilowatts (less than 0.5% of total consumption). The turbines are primarily used to demonstrate the technology, as well as for research and teaching purposes.
