University at Buffalo, The State University of New York

GRoW Home placed second overall at the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2015. The team from the University at Buffalo, The State University of New York earned first place in the Comfort Zone Contest, tied for first in Energy Balance, and earned second in Appliances and third in Communications.

After the Solar Decathlon, the GRoW Home returned to the University of Buffalo where it was reconstructed adjacent to the School of Architecture and Planning. By the summer of 2019, the house will be converted to the Multiscalar Energy Research and Education Center, with the goals of conducting federal and state grant-funded research, creating education courses to develop expertise in energy systems, and providing consulting services to local professionals for improved energy performance and climate resilience in local communities.
