EU Solar Decathlon in Madrid June 18-27

At the Green Embassies Workshop in Paris, we were able to tell many of the Green League about the upcoming Solar Decathlon in Madrid. As Ambassador Solomont indicated, the Solar Decathlon is a great partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy and the Spanish Ministry of Housing. The Solar Decathlon has become a highly visible public event to draw attention to innovative design for zero-energy buildings. Universities from around the world compete in this fantastic event. The EU Solar Decathlon, the first ever, will be held in Madrid June 18-27. U.S. schools participating include the University of Florida and the Virginia Polytechnic Institute State University. Schools from Spain, Mexico, UK, China, Finland, Germany, France, the U.S., and Brazil are participating. More details on lead-up events and plans for the solar village can be found at http://www.sdeurope.org/index.htm. This could be a great opportunity for the Green League to celebrate transatlantic clean energy technology collaboration.
