Are there any large skyscrapers powered by wind only?

    Not that I’m aware of, but the Strata tower in London generates 8% of its energy with turbines installed in the building itself.

    Yes, although they are currently fairly rare. Dynamic Architecture has built one that rotates in Dubai. It’s built around a rotating central core surrounded by 59 independantly rotating levels, which generate power from massive horizontal turbines in between each floor. However, this building was only possible to construct thanks to Dubai’s massive oil wealth. Another building in the Bahranian city of Manama is powered thanks to giant sails on its sides which catch the wind, similarly powering turbines.

    Bahrain has a very cool skyscraper/wind turbine. Unfortunately the turbines can only supply about 15% of the building’s electricity.
