The concept of a Inspiring place to work is deep rooted in the mission of ‘powering a greener tomorrow, today’ begins by translating these very words into action by creating an environment that is powered by renewable energy. Suzlon One Earth has unique features that make it stand for the very purpose it was built.
Suzlon One Earth is 100% powered by a combination of onsite & offsite renewable energy sources. Out of this, 7% of the total energy consumption comes from 18 onsite hybrid wind turbines, solar panels & photovoltaic cells and 93% of the remaining is from offsite wind turbines
Unique features of Suzlon One Earth
Rapidly renewable materials - Bamboo flooring used at workstations ensure reduced consumption of energy.
RE based exterior lighting - LED street lighting is completely powered by Renewable Energy based systems located on the site thus reducing approximately 25% of the total lighting load. 90% of regularly occupied spaces have daylight exposure, thereby saving on artificial lighting.
Storm & Rain water management system- channels all rain received into a controlled flow, preventing soil erosion and facilitating removal of silt.
Minimizing Ozone Depletion – At One Earthair conditioning & cooling systems used are free of Chloro Flouro Carbons (CFCs), Hydro Chloro Flouro Carbons (HCFCs) & Halons (compounds threatening to the protective Ozone layer). The refrigerant used is with zero Ozone Depleting Potential.
Efficient cooling systems - Energy efficient airconditioning systems at One Earth are flexible in cooling as per the type and requirement of space reducing overall power consumption.
Enhancing indoor air quality - Sensors & modulating dampers are used in all densely occupied spaces for monitoring CO2 levels. The sensors allow additional inflow of fresh air as soon as the CO2 differential rises above the certified limit.
Efficient Sunlight screening - Louvers are designed to provide efficient screening of sunlight without hindering the view thus reducing heat dissipation and aids efficient cooling
Daylight & occupancy sensors - Daylight sensors are used in the workstation area for optimized use of artificial lighting. Occupancy sensors control task lighting in unoccupied workstations ensuring savings of about 20% of energy costs.
Efficient ventilation system - Jet fans installed at the basements intermittently push out stale air & bring in fresh air saving 50% energy as compared to ducted basement ventilation system.
Low energy materials - More than 70% of materials used in the interiors have a reduced carbon footprint. They ensure higher recycled content; have lower embodied energy, are rapidly renewable.
Pervious paving- Interlocking concrete paver blocks used on road surface enable water percolation & control storm water run-off benefiting the water table levels.
