The Asian Development Bank has been hard at work making sure that its headquarters is more energy-efficient. A lot of changes have already been implemented, starting with its Rooftop Solar Photovoltaic (PV) Power Plant Project which generates 613 megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity per year. More than 2,000 PV modules were installed on its roof area, and 50 solar panels were installed on the rooftop of the ADB’s parking garage. Lights around the building have also been replaced with LED lamps. Hybrid cars have been added to its fleet as well. Anidolic mirrors are interesting additions to the building, because they work to “scoop” daylight and direct it into the building, thus reducing the need for and use of artificial light.
