European Union Ministers Visit Solar Decathlon EuropeSunday, June 20, 2010
Sunday evening around 8 p.m., we had a special treat: a visit by 27 European Union ministers of housing! The ministers are in Madrid for a meeting of the European Union, so they took some time to visit Solar Decathlon Europe.
The village again had to be cleared for a security sweep, but the teams were happy to have such special visitors—especially so many at one time!
Richard King is the director of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. Throughout the Solar Decathlon Europe competition, U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon organizers are reporting from Madrid.
