TimberTower: The World’s First Wooden Wind Turbine Erected in Germany

Comments Off on TimberTower: The World’s First Wooden Wind Turbine Erected in Germany

According to a Department of Energy report released in August,  roughly $14 billion was invested in the wind industry last year, which accounts for a 32 percent increase in U.S. generating capacity and supports roughly 75,000 full-time jobs in 43 states. While all that clean energy is a great thing, wind turbines aren’t as green as you may think. Currently, more steel is being used in the wind energy industry than in shipbuilding. Making steel requires enormous amounts of energy, is expensive, and releases harmful CO2 into the atmosphere. That’s why a German company called TimberTower is experimenting with a new turbine design – the company recently celebrated the installation of the world’s first wooden wind turbine tower in Hanover, Germany. TimberTower says the turbine will sequester 400 tons of CO2 while generating clean, renewable energy .

Working to counter the inherently environmentally destructive nature of a car-based commute, British firm Town Centre Car Parks has committed to making their public car parks environmentally friendly by installing the largest urban solar photovoltaic array in the UK. Situated on the roof of the Clarence Dock multi-story car park in Leeds city center, the system provides 15% of the car park’s electricity, reducing carbon emissions by 55 tonnes each year. The company is also trialling the use of LED lighting in some of their car parks to further reduce their impact on the environment. Additionally, Town Center has started to install electric vehicle charging stations in their car parks. + Town Centre Car Parks The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.
