There will be teams from 20 universities around the US and the world with full sized demonstration homes that aimed at winning the decathlon competition that emphasizes energy efficiency and sustainability.
This from the Solar Decathlon website explains the decathlon:
- Educates student participants and the public about the many cost-saving opportunities presented by clean-energy products
- Demonstrates to the public the opportunities presented by cost-effective houses that combine energy-efficient construction and appliances with renewable energy systems that are available today
- Provides participating students with unique training that prepares them to enter our nation's clean-energy workforce.
