International Solar Decathlon Europe zero carbon home, University of Nottingham entry

New student competition to design build and use a zero carbon home (no emissions or balanced emissions).

The University of Nottingham’s student entry (with Saint-Gobain) will début at Ecobuild in March 2010 at Earls Court, London. (See other post). The student final is in Madrid later in the year.

This is of great interest to builders and DIY self builders, as new devices and techniques filter through to your local B&Q or merchant.
