Solar building in Tübingen: AVANCIS PV modules shine ‘Westspitze’ in bronze
A new, energy-efficient commercial and office high-rise in a unique wood-hybrid construction was built on the site of the former goods station in the city of Tübingen. The new seven-storey commercial building ‘Westspitze’ is the flagship in the new city quarter of the old freight yard because the energy efficiency building is completely clad with PV modules on the façade. More than 600 bronze-colored solar façade modules from AVANCIS generate electricity with an annual forecast yield of more than 50 MWh. Thus, almost 30 tons of CO2 emissions are saved through the use of solar power per year.
