This building, made from the clay excavated from a water storage project on the same site, is a solar greenhouse with a thick wall between the sun side and shade side to provide a cold storage root cellar. Along with the solar panels on top is a living roof and there is also a heat exchanger inside that connects the greenhouse to the biogas digester.

    Before I even watch the whole thing, some feedback: this is not TV, it's unnecessary to have a 1-minute intro, just cut to the chase.
