Located on the famous commercial streets of Paris, Rue de Rivoli, the project "Mountain towers" will include a bioclimatic peaks which are integrated a variety of renewable energy into the existing structures.
There are three kinds of renewable energy in each tower. At the day, two giant shields photovoltaic and thermal solar will produce electricity and hot water. At night, a resersible hydro-electrical pumped storage station will allow an urban cascade flow out from the top of tower to prevent the need of batteries to store the electricity produced. Finally, balcony gardens surround the residential floors and filter in clean recycled water used by inhabitants by phyto-purification and bio-composting.
