Solar panels and a giant wind turbine that rests on top of the building harnesses power to sustain the structure itself.

A more unique energy source contained within the unit, however, comes from peddling visitors who ride exercise bikes inside the building. The bikes are free to use and activated via smartphone which then links the rider's electricity account to the cycle.
