Deloitte office most sustainable building of the globe
'The Edge' has a number of innovative design and technologically advanced components. Its green features include tapping into the earth’s potential, with a 130 meter deep thermal energy storage system, allowing the building to capture excess heat during the day to be released back into the system when needed. It features solar panels, as well as a wide open window pane on the north-side allows 60% of the office building to be reached by natural light. Internally it features advanced adaptive lighting features developed by Philips. This system uses LEDs, which are up to 80% more efficient than conventional lighting. The lighting system is further connected through Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) technology, which allows the lighting system to be controlled and monitored through smartphone apps and building maintenance, creating greater efficiency in turning off unused light.
