The Solar Decathlon brings together 18 teams of college and university students from around the globe to participate in an unparalleled solar competition to design, build, and operate the most attractive and energy-efficient solar-powered home. The teams transport their solar houses to the National Mall in Washington, D.C., where they form a solar village. The village and solar houses are open to the public from Oct. 7-16. Team houses are closed to the public on October 12 for competition purposes. The teams compete in 10 contests to determine an overall winner. See the competition schedule for detailed information. Using only energy from the sun, the teams generate enough electricity to run a modern household. To keep up with the students and organizers' experiences, you can read the Solar Decathlog, an online diary of the 2005 Solar Decathlon. With an eye on energy efficiency, the students carefully choose the systems, products, and appliances used in their houses. A list of these items is available in the product directory. The Solar Decathlon is a competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy in partnership with its National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the American Institute of Architects, the National Association of Homebuilders, BP, the DIY Network, and Sprint.
