New York Institute of Technology (NYIT) is one of
selected from around the world and the only school from
the New York metropolitan area to compete in the 2007
Solar Decathlon, an event sponsored by the U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE) and the National
Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). This competition
challenges college and university students to design,
build, and operate a fully-functional home powered entirely
by the sun.
Building on the success of NYIT's 2005 entry, Green
Machine/Blue Space, our goal is to inform, educate
and raise public awareness about alternative and renewable
energy sources, sustainable design and reducing the
environmental impact of conventional construction.
