2007 Solar Decathlon Comes to a Close

Twenty teams from Canada; Spain; Germany; and the United States, including Puerto Rico participated in the 2007 Solar Decathlon, where they showed off their solar homes, which were powered and heated exclusively by solar energy, on Washington D.C.'s National Mall. After a week of judging and 10 different contests, Technische Universit├Ąt Darmstadt, the team from Germany, took first place, followed by the University of Maryland and Santa Clara University.

The Solar Decathlon challenged teams from colleges and universities around the world to create solar-powered houses that were attractive, effective, and energy-efficient. From the 12th through the 20th of October, thousands of visitors came to the Solar Village to tour and explore the competitors' houses. See Solar Decathlon's final results Web page to see the final results for all 20 schools.
