The chimney principle is copied from ants and termites, which ingeniously craft corridors that regulate the temperature without active ventilation.

Two new buildings have been opened as an example of building energy and CO2 neutral.

  1. One of them is a school which even will deliver electricity to the grid
  2. The other is an Environmental Education Centre (picture) is housing offices, a restaurant, exhibition halls and a doctors practice. But for both of the buildings, the solar chimney is The Big Innovation!

Termite mount

In the solar chimney, air is drawn into the ground via pipes and discharged again via the tower. This principle is copied from ants and termites, which ingeniously craft corridors that regulate the temperature without active ventilation.

The buildings are designed with green roofs that isolate and will store all the rain and storm waters.
