The Rembrandt Tower is trendsetting in terms of sustainability. Even at the time when it was built, it was one of the first buildings to comply with today's strict standards. The choice in favour of a steel construction, for instance, allowed for a lighter concrete foundation. Furthermore, steel can be re-used in the distant future.
Another remarkable feature is the nearby power station which supplies sustainably generated base load heat and cold to the plan area. The residual heat from the gas engines is immediately used for heating purposes and indirectly for cooling purposes using an absorption refrigeration machine. In lower outdoor temperatures, outside air is used for free cooling. In combination with the tower's excellent insulation, this ensures that a minimum amount of energy will suffice. And finally, all of the waste produced in the Rembrandt Tower is collected separately for recycling.
