Innovative Green Power at the O2

Innovative Green Power at the O2

Greenwich’s O2 arena is to install new generation wind turbines to generate green electricity.

The turbines are made from recycled plastic using a new design which can capture and use even the breeze caused by a passing car to generate power. The 10 turbines at the Greenwich Peninsular site are expected to generate the equivalent of 23 homes’ electricity requirements.

The turbines are supplied by British startup Alpha 311 which is based 50 miles down the Thames Estuary from the O2, at Whitstable in Kent.
