Skyscrapers provide ideal locations for roof-mounted wind turbines. Thanks to nearly constant air currents at higher altitudes, turbines can generate a considerable portion of a building’s own power requirements.

One of the more striking examples of the clever incorporation of solar- and wind-power technology is the refurbished CIS tower in Manchester, England. It relies on a photovoltaic skin to generate up to 180 000 kWh of electricity per year and has two dozen wind turbines that produce about one tenth of its energy requirement.
