The building will be utilising photovoltaic cells to ensure complete reliance on renewable energy.

To facilitate efficient use of the cells, Bee’ah signed an agreement with Tesla to utilise their advanced Powerpack battery technology.

The company has acquired nine storage packs, with a total capacity of 1,890 kWhs, which will store the energy from the cells, and keep the building operational in the absence of sunlight.

The building which is expected to receive a platinum certification, by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC), under its Leadership in Energy and Efficient Design (LEED) programme, is making rapid progress towards the completion of construction.

According to Tesla, every Powerpack contains 16 individual battery pods, each with an isolated DC-DC converter.

The Powerpack system is able to scale to space, power and energy requirements, can be configured in various arrangements for commercial sites.
