Impossible. Please read about Cogeneration (CHP). If you have any ideas about more effective way of energy use (more than 89%) — please tell.

I photoshopped the smoke: There was no smoke on the original! I'm not knowledgeable in that area of Cogeneration & Physics, and didn't mean to steer up a debate.

1. You are being offtopic and may be punished.
2. It was said hundreds of times just in this single thread - they are not industrial chimneys.

As for me, they're just an interesting part of the skyline. Something original, different from other big cities, shows that Moscow's also a big industrial city, not only the place of crowds.

God gracious... does anyone here actually READS the comment or only writes them?
It has been stated 100s of times hat those have nothing to do with industry, in fat those are symbol of Moscow being the place for crowds as they are a part of central heating for residential sector!

It also sad to see how ignorance is made into something some d..a.. trying to be proud of... I don't know anything about this or that... but.. you know if you don't then you should learn before you open mouth or start typing.. and them you have pass the judgment...

BTW here in Helsinki we have same chimneys too as we also have same central heating system. And we have it because it is the most efficient in our northern climate!

Yes but can't Luzhkov build those ugly things outside the center of Moscow. There are enough heating stations in Europe but they are build outside the city and connected through a pipeline.It really destroys the skyline of Moscow.

Getting back to the IBC, is this an accurate summary of the state of play?

Federation Tower 2: progressing very slowly;
Mercury City Tower: work progressing, tower now out of the ground;
Eurasia: rose fairly quickly but work now halted;
City of Capitals: no change to the very top floors of both towers for some months;
City Duma: foundation work progressing slowly;
Imperia Tower: on hold, no work done this year.

Most of them are near suburbs — on Moscow Automobile Ring Road. But they can not be placed too far away from houses because they are connected with any building in the city by the pipes with hot drinking water and pipes with extremely hot water for the central heating (using in winter). No one will build 100 km long hot water pipe.
