  4. Wind power continues to beat nuclear energy in China

    This couldn't have been done if China had focused solely on nuclear energy. Renewable energy sources are capable of being deployed much faster and on a bigger scale than any other energy source. Renewables will save the climate while nuclear will continue to be a dangerous side project in the world.

  6. This is super cool! But considering their placements I do wonder how much electricity they will actually produce.

    Located above the second level, the turbines will produce over 10,000kWh of electricity a year, offsetting the annual consumption of all commercial activity on the Eiffel Tower’s first floor.

  11. Construction of the the two wind turbines

    From the album The Eiffel Tower goes green

    The two UGE VisionAIR5 vertical axis wind turbines were specially painted to match the iconic tower, and are located 400 feet above ground level to maximize energy production. Mounting the turbines at this location was in itself a technical challenge, requiring each component to be hoisted individually and suspended with rope above the tower’s second level.
