SUSTAINABILITY PAVILION, A 100% SELF-SUSTAINING BUILDING IN THE MIDDLE OF A DESERT
New paths to sustainability
Some of the evening sessions of the G-STIC conference will take place in the sustainability pavilion. This pavilion shows that an entirely self-sufficient building is possible in the middle of a desert, quite a challenging environment.
A 130-metre wide canopy, called Terra, acts as a roof for the building and is covered with 1,055 solar panels that supply energy to the pavilion. 18 massive energy trees in the shape of sunflowers rotate through the day to track and store the sunlight and also distribute power.
The pavilion will produce 4 GWh of electricity per year. This is enough for a Nissan Leaf to drive halfway to Mars or charge more than 900,000 mobile phones. Innovative irrigation techniques, including a greywater recycling system, reduce water use by up to 75%.
