TIL: the existence of the Norwegian Powerhouse standard for building development.

I'll quote the main definition from the document defining it:

"A Powerhouse shall during its lifetime produce more renewable energy than it uses for materials,
production, operation, renovation and demolition."

That's a hell of a standard, and apparently there's actually buildings being built to it: treehugger.com/green-architect
