London hasn’t set a great example for renewable energy in the past, but they’re hoping to continue building a new reputation with what will be the greenest structure in the city. A local architecture firm is planning to build a five-story school building that will be ran solely from energy generated by the Thames River. It will be constructed of renewable products and it will feature carbon monitoring systems.

Curl la Tourelle Head Architecture has been working on the design and unveiled their plans last week. The school will be constructed at a Northwestern area where the Thames River has most of its activity. Turbines below the building will use tidal surges four times a day to generate electricity, and it should be enough to power the entire five-story building.
