Are there any office buildings that produce more energy than they use?

    Presently, it would be impossible for the energy generated by an office building to exceed its energy usage, but an organization called the “New Buildings Institute” has accomplished commercial buildings that are thirty percent more energy efficient than the national standards.  In a related topic, there is an emerging movement of “eco gyms”.  The link below contains information about a revolutionary fitness center in Australia in which the electricity and heating of the building is powered by energy produced from customers running on treadmills.  In the United States, a similar facility has been gaining attention in Portland, Oregon.
