Right under our feet there is a source of clean and efficient energy. La Fabrica del Sol in Barcelona is living proof. An old Catalan building dating back to the beginning of the last century, it was recently converted to become a shining example of energy efficiency. The building uses vertical geothermal energy to heat it in winter and cool it in summer. But theres no need for volcanoes with the Mediterranean Sea right next door. Aniol Esquerra Alsius, an Industrial engineer at Ecoserveis explains the difference. [read more]
