The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is a collegiate competition, comprising 10 contests, that challenges student teams to design and build highly efficient and innovative buildings powered by renewable energy.
It’s been going on since 2002 and has produced hundreds of model houses built by student teams from all over the world. This year they are doing a webinar series as well. Should be lots and lots of good information here which will be especially useful now that Governor Baker has vetoed the Climate Roadmap bill.
Democracy is do it yourself and I guess so is energy and climate policy.
