This Friday, our team will audaciously split into two and give simultaneous presentations across the country! Six of us will have arrived in Denver to present for the Department of Energy, and the rest will be at the Middlebury College Spring Symposium for a 30 minute long presentation followed by a Q & A.

Our Middlebury presentation will take place Friday April 20th in McCardell Bicentennial Hall room 311 at 1:30 pm. If you are at all interested in zero energy design or have questions about our project, please come by! Our website has been deliberately free of details on our project, as we believe many of our decisions will give us a competitive edge. This Friday though, the cat’s out of the bag! We will lay bare our entire process, beginning with site selection and continuing all the way to energy and mechanical design.

Our team has spent considerable time the past two weeks preparing these presentations, and we hope to convey our design clearly and succinctly. The material is accessible to all audiences, no matter your previous knowledge of zero energy. Following this week’s competition, our team will open up our design for all to view. In early May we will again present to the Middlebury Select Board. As always, feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions, and wish us luck!
