Green Lighthouse, Copenhagen: Denmark's First Public Carbon-Neutral Building | GMOs & FOOD, WATER & SOIL MATTERS | Scoop.it

Located in Copenhagen, Denmark, the Green Lighthouse is the first CO2 neutral public building in the country.

Designed by Christensen & Co Architects, the project features a circular shape and adjustable louvers mirroring the course of the sun, which is the main source of energy.

The project is based on a new experiment with the energy which consists of a supply combination of district heating, photovoltaic solar heating and cooling and seasonal storage. The building’s design led to a 70% reduction of the energy consumption due to its round shape which features adjustable louvers that follow the sun’s course.
