THIS WEEK: Check out this week’s webisode where Planet Forward’s Frank Sesno interviews Secretary of Energy, Dr. Steven Chu on site at the 2011 Solar Decathlon! Chu talks about some of the coolest innovations in the houses, and even wonks out a bit on r values and building materials.
STANDINGS: The official DOE final standings for the solar decathlon put the University of Maryland on top (congrats, Terps!) followed by Purdue, New Zealand and Middlebury. But we have our own contest and YOU are the judge. Vote for which team was your favorite at www.PlanetForward.org and maybe you can see them featured in a PBS Nightly Business Report!
