Solar Decathlon

Every other year, twenty universities from around the world compete in the solar decathlon in (surprise!) 10 categories

  • Architecture
  • Engineering
  • Market Viability
  • Communications
  • Comfort Zone
  • Appliances
  • Hot Water
  • Lighting
  • Energy Balance and
  • Getting Around

the homes are limited to 800 sq. ft., for transport by truck or shipping container and, while designed for grid-tied electricity, are built off-grid on the Mall.

I've created a couple of video tours:

Introduction (win 2:12)
House by House (win 23:45)

Introduction (apple 2:12)
House by House (apple 23:45)
