The Center for Applied Energy Research has partnered with over sixteen different departments and centers at the University of Kentucky to collaborate in the 2009 Solar Decathlon. The US Department of Energy bi-annually conducts the US Solar Decathlon in Washington, DC (www.solardecathlon.org). This is a competition in which twenty college- and university-led teams from around the world work to design, finance, construct, and operate the most energy-efficient, solar-powered homes imaginable. The team-constructed 800 square foot house will be built on the UK campus and then transported and assembled on the National Mall between the Washington Monument and the Capitol where it will be judged in ten areas evaluating the next generation of energy efficient solar-powered homes.
