VaTech team wins Solar Decathlon

A team from my alma mater won the Solar Decathlon Europe, a competition to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses.  The winning design is named Lumenhaus, an 800 square foot home and has a solar array on the roof which which changes to maximize its efficiency.

An exhilarating race from start to finish, some houses fell behind the pack, while a clear group of winners gradually took the lead at the forefront, and now, we are thrilled to finally announce that the winner of this year’s Solar Decathlon Europe is Virginia Tech, for their luminous Lumenhaus!
