The one-of-its-kind 6,000 square-foot center in Malaysia is designed to interact with natural elements such as sunlight (40kWp solar panels fitted on a double roof structure), water (50 cubic metre rain water harvesting system), air (energy efficient air conditioning and quality purification) and earth (green landscaping and reduction of heat reflections). The 24MWh of energy the center can generate per year is akin to a reduction of approximately 12 tons of CO2 emission (or 600 trees being saved per year)!
