Freiburg is known as an 'eco-city'. In recent years it has attracted the
German Federal Authority
for Radiation Protection, solar industries and research; the 'green political
party' in Germany
had a stronghold here. The citizens of Freiburg are known in Germany for
their love of cycling
and recycling. In June 1992, the Freiburg city council adopted a resolution
that it would only

and all new buildings
must comply with certain low energy specifications. Low-energy housing
uses the solar power
passively as well as actively. In addition to solar panels and collectors
on the roof, providing
electricity and hot water, many passive features use the energy obtained
from the sun,
to regulate the temperature of the rooms.

used to provide water to fight fires and feed livestock, are constantly
flowing with water
