BSkyB has confirmed that it has received planning permission for a wind turbine at its new studios in Osterley, West London. The company said the planning approval, which also covers a proposed combined heat and power biomass generator, represents the final piece in the studio's jigsaw for a studio complex that the company is already positioning as the "world's greenest broadcasting centre". A spokeswoman for Sky said the new £233m facility, dubbed Harlequin 1, will cover an area equivalent to two New York City blocks and feature eight state-of-the-art studios, as well as offices and broadcasting infrastructure.
However, it will also boast a range of green and energy-efficient innovations, including rainwater harvesting systems, energy-efficient lighting and green data centre systems.
