Buildings Re-Fitted to Generate More Power Than They Use

Two 1980s office blocks in Norway are being renovated to use geothermal and solar energy in what is believed to be the first project of its type. Most focus on green energy has been in new buildings, but around 80% of existing buildings in developed countries are expected to still be in use in 2050. The buildings will produce more than enough electricity for lighting and heating in less than optimal conditions for solar energy.
