The village opened last year and includes 25 homes and an auditorium that can be used for training, talks and conferences, however the homes only opened last month and provide an unusual setting and accommodation facilities for small groups wishing to stay several nights in the area.
ITER, the Institute of Technology and Renewable Energies, founded by the Tenerife Island Government, is behind the initiative.
Located in the southern district of Granadilla, the houses are made from ecological resources, are self-sufficient and do not depend on external energy sources. They generate zero carbon emissions and have been heralded as the ‘green architecture of the future’. The project aims to encourage sustainable practices via the rental of the houses and training facilities.
