These 'Metallica Towers' Provide Renewable Energy for Dubai

References: &
The 'Metallica Towers' are two towers that were designed to provide renewable energy to the desert kingdom of Dubai. The towers were conceptualized by Egyptian architecht Karim Elnabawy and feature wind turbines and solar panels.

The uber-intelligent design of these 'Metallica Towers' hopes to take advantage of Dubai's harsh weather conditions. Heat absorbed by the towers is gathered in the solar panels and used to serve power to the wind turbines. The 'Metallica Towers' have a gorgeous design that looks nothing like conventional power plants.
