Sun-Ship solar-powered building
This large solar-powered building, called the Sonnenschiff or "Sun-Ship", includes shops, offices and penthouses.
Behind it is a "solar community" consisting of "plus-energy houses" that generate their own energy from regenerative sources. The goal of "plus-energy" construction is to cover the total energy requirement of the house in a regenerative way and even to produce a surplus.
Construction site on Eichhalde
Since Freiburg has more hours of sunlight per year than any other German city, the people here have long been active in using solar panels and other alternative energy sources to provide heat and power for their houses.
This particular house, on a street called Eichhalde which is part of the Freiburg Bicycle Loop Trail, is being built with (they say) a "small power plant in your own house", using Stirling technology in combination with solar panels.
