Solar Winner from the Land of Grey Skies


It seems a bit ironic that the team from the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, a place not known for its sunny blue skies, won the U.S. Energy Dept.?? annual solar decathalon. This year?? competition had 20 university teams from the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico, Germany, and Spain building ultra-energy-efficient houses on the mall. And it appears that coming from a country where, as the poet Heinrich Heine put it, ??ummer is a green winter?was no disadvantage.

Congratulations to the men and women of Darmstadt. The University of Maryland placed second and Santa Clara University, in genuinely sunny Silicon Valley, came in third.
