1 U.S. Universities Shine at Solar Decathlon Europe

Virginia Tech’s Lumenhaus was just awarded the grand prize at the Solar Decathlon Europe 2010 in Madrid, beating out the University of Applied Sciences Rosenheim by less than one point in the event’s inaugural year. University of Florida’s RE:Focus also shined, bringing home the public choice award via public online voting. In its first year to be hosted internationally in Spain this was a great showing by American Universities and a promising sign for the future of the US design and engineering industry.
