The DOE Solar Decathlon 2011

Posted by Webmaster on 19. September 2011 16:11

This Friday, September 23 marks the opening of the DOE Solar Decathlon 2011, a competition that challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive.

In addition to touring these amazing homes for yourself, the public can take part in the Solar Decathlon workshops - a broad range of presentations, including a talk on the latest in Building Envelope R&D. Be sure to check it out! Read more about the workshop summaries online, at the Solar Decathlon homepage. All workshop presentations will take place in the large Main Tent of the Solar Village, at the south end next to both the shuttle stop and the south Welcome tent.

    Are any workshops planned for this year? With all the fuss around global warming and having more than enough sun, not using solar energy seems just ... unwise. If every household relayed at least part of the energy they consume on solar panels, both the economy and well being would have benefited tremendously!
