Solar Decathlon House Continues to Yield Data
Students and faculty hope their innovations from last year’s Department of Energy Solar Decathlon benefit teams gearing up for the 2013 contest. The U.S. Department of Energy’s biannual international competition challenges teams of students to design and build low- to zero-energy homes, learning about solar power and sustainable design along the way. UT’s “Living Light” house that placed eighth in the 2011 competition is still yielding research results and offering new teams a head start.
