Team Austria Design LISI Wins Solar Decathlon 2013
Vienna University of Technology and their LISI Home wooed judges and visitors alike to grab the top prize at U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2013. The prestigious event saw a photo-finish of sorts with Team Austria beating University of Nevada Las Vegas UNLV by mere 4.35 points. Considering that the teams are judged out of a total 1000 points spread across various facets of sustainable design like energy production, efficiency, ergonomics and real world appeal, the margin for error is indeed pretty small. Rounding off the podium finishers is the Czech Technical University that finished an agonizing 2.43 points behind UNLV!
