The Sun Ship is the service center for the Solar Settlement in Freiburg and the first commercial PlusEnergy building. It functions as a sound barrier for the housing community thanks to its five stories. Embedded in roof garden landscaping, nine exclusive three level penthouses were constructed with their PV roofs. In addition to the large scale PV plants, the building efficiency is essential for the maximum energy saving. Significant costs are saved because of an annual primary energy savings of about 1 million kWh. The Sun Ship offers infrastructure for a city area of about 25,000 people.
