This year's competition featured 33 teams from 27 universities. Over the last several months, students were tasked with redesigning an existing floor plan or creating a new house design to meet the competition's cost-effective, high-performance home energy requirements.

The University of Illinois Solar Decathlon team has been named one of the five Grand Winner Finalists in the 2015 Race to Zero Competition for it's submission of the Sun Catcher Cottage. We could not be more proud of our Race to Zero team!
