#solarenergy in Germany

A walk in Germany at the end of November made me realise that if solar energy is a good thing (and I think it is) there is, at least in the north, plenty of roof space still unused.

I’d like to know more about the relative merits of PV and solar thermal if roof space is limited. (Am I right that the house in the picture has both?)
