In Shanghai World Expo, London will build two houses. They will not need conventional electricity and water supplies but instead make use of the sun, wind, biotic energy and rain water.

The two houses are three stories and are located on the Puxi side of the Expo site, with a total area of 2,500 square meters.

They will have slanted rooftops covered with plants and solar panels.

Eleven windmills on each of the rooftops will bring fresh air into the houses.

Restaurant leftovers will be used for power generation.

Visitors will be able to see the process of how the leftovers are turned into electricity.

In order to decrease the carbon dioxide emissions and realize sustainable development, the Expo site had introduced many methods to make use of natural resources and save energy through solar power, wind effects and Huangpu River water.
