I came across this Greenpeace UK site over the weekend which illustrates how our modern cities and towns can find simple solutions for providing local green power. Efficiencity is an interactive tour through a small UK city, in which many of the key buildings utilize environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions for providing energy needs. The site features a wealth of knowledge on different building types and uses case studies of real buildings to illustrate how we all could make a difference in the worlds energy requirements by incorporating some of these same strategies into our current city planning and development processes.
The site was designed and developed by local stars Biro Creative who did an excellent job creating this virtual world for us to explore. Check out the site and see what you can do to improve your local energy consumption.
