The scores are in and the two Passivhaus projects entered in the Solar Decathlon came in One and Two. Team Germany won the contest with the University of Illinois placing second, both projects were Passivhaus constructions with the U of I actually being certified. (Team Germany did not certify before leaving Germany because of timing). Both teams smoked the competition once again showing the world that Passivhaus is a quantum leap in energy efficiency. The last solar decathlon two years ago was won by the only Passivhaus entry. YEAH BABY!
