Deconstruction is underway in Irvine. After two intense years of dedication and hard work for the Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Decathlon we can’t believe it’s over. The UT-TUM NexusHaus team came in fourth overall out of the fourteen competitors that made it to California. We also placed first for Energy Balance, second for Affordability, and third for Engineering. Twenty teams were initially selected by the DOE in 2014, but the rigorous requirements and incredible coordination proved to be too much for some schools.
