The skyscraper is therefore a new landmark for the city of Jakarta The energy tower will be accompanied by an exhibition hall, a mosque and a power plant, following a new standard for sustainable development. The Pertamina energy tower will become the first building in the world which generates energy and uses the energy as foundations for a remarkable design.
No doubt that this tower will create a new trend, because it is different from sophisticated skyscrapers which are designed today. Its silhouette is simple and streamlined.
Some umbrellas placed on the facade are used to control the environment inside the tower, reducing energy requirements while ensuring the flow of natural light. All sources of renewable energy production planned include a quarter of the electricity required for the project. It is estimated that the building can reduce its carbon emissions by 26 %.
