Title: Solar Park St. Alban Competence Center for Sustainability

In St. Alban (Germany) the company Bio-Solar-Haus built a solar park of approx. 2 hectares with 12 organic solar residences for trial living by prospective customers along with an office and service building. Neither concrete nor asphalt seals the earth on streets, parking areas and walkways. Open areas and part of the roofs were planted with vegetation. Rain water is collected in a small natural pond, where it is naturally cleansed via a reed water treatment facility, warmed by the sun and used for domestic purposes. Waste water is treated in a plant-based water treatment facility. The houses are heated using the natural greenhouse effect of solar energy along with a small amount of wood.
