La trigénération: un atout pour l'immeuble "Central Park" à Sydney (en anglais).

One Central Park, récemment récompensé "meilleur immeuble de grande hauteur" à Sydney, fait appel à la trigénération et à l'énergie solaire.
Designed by French group Ateliers Jean Nouvel and Australia’s PTW, the building received the award from the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) based at Chicago’s Illinois Institute of Technology in the US.

It will achieve a minimum of 5 Green Stars for each building. A natural-gas operated 2-MW trigeneration energy plant will produce low-carbon thermal energy, providing heating and cooling for 3,000 residences and 65,000 m² of retail and commercial space in 14 buildings at Central Park.
The stage one trigeneration energy centre will also supply low-carbon electricity to a hotel and a mixed-use Brewery Yard building.

Trigeneration is said to be twice as energy efficient as a coal-fired power plant and it is claimed that the plan could reduce greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 190,000 tonnes over the 25 year planned life-cycle of the plant. The plan was funded by a 26.5m AUD Environmental Upgrade Agreement (EUA), a new type of low-cost, long-term funding for green infrastructure consisting in a voluntary agreement between a building owner, a finance provider and a local council, and made possible by changes to the Australian Local Government Act in 2011.

The building is also characterized by its rooftop gardens, green walls, cantilevered solar panels and smart-metering systems.
