Buckingham Palace Tops List of the Least Green Buildings in London
Buckingham Palace is found to be the top energy inefficient building in London. Buckingham Palace, the main residence of British sovereigns for almost 175 years, leaks so much energy it could be a sieve. Thermal imaging of the 775-room palace showed heat flowing from closed, curtained windows, pouring from the roof and streaming through cracks in the walls. In 2008 Buckingham Palace’s energy bill was close to $3 million.
