Date: Tuesday 27 March 2012, 5:30pm - 9:00pm. This is a free event.

This Knowledge Cafe is a little different from usual as there will be a tour of PriceWaterhouseCooper's new office tower "7 More London" that stands on the south bank of the Thames near city hall. It is one of the UK’s greenest office buildings 

The ‘7 More London’ is designed to utilize waste heat from its air conditioning system. The designers claim that 25% of the building’s energy is produced onsite.

The solar thermal panels with onsite energy generation using recycled cooking oil are responsible for that big amount of energy produced. Europe’s leading green building rating system, BREEAM makes use of a point system that takes a number of sustainable building issues into consideration to award a building its rating. The issues include reductions in water and energy use, increasing natural lighting and fresh air, the use of recycled materials, and placement.

The building has succeeded in obtaining an energy conservation rating of 70% above building code.
