Twenty teams, representing five countries on four continents, have been selected to compete in the 2011 Solar Decathlon. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu announced the teams today for the competition to be held on the National Mall in the Fall of 2011. In a statement released this afternoon, Chu said,
“These students are tomorrow’s leaders in helping develop a clean energy economy. Their innovative projects will help raise public awareness about energy efficiency, help save consumers money and reduce carbon pollution.”
