BP Solar Decathlon

BP is a proud to partner with the U.S. Department of Energy and sponsor the Solar Decathlon. In this event that occurs every other year, 20 university teams from around the world design, build and operate livable, every-efficient, and completely solar-powered houses. The event culminates in a week-long competition on the National Mall in Washington, DC. This year, the even occurs from October 11–19.

BP is sponsoring this special event as part of their commitment to discovering cost effective, clean energy solutions for everyday living. They are one of the main corporate sponsors, and the only energy company sponsor, of the 2007 Solar Decathlon and have been involved since the first competition in 2002.

As part of their support for the competition, BP has created a blog in which all of the teams as well as an on-site reporter will write posts throughout the competition. Visit the site @ BP Solar Decathlon


Did you know?

· BP is investing $500 million into the Energy Biosciences Institute in which the company will partner with the University of California Berkeley, the University of Illinois and the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab to find bioscience solutions to reduce the impact of energy consumption on the environment.

· BP produces more than 200 MW of solar technology every year. Did you know that an area 200 miles square covered with solar panels could provide all the electricity the world needs?

· BP’s jointly-owned Nerefco wind farm generates enough zero-carbon energy to power 13,000 average homes. Wind can potentially provide around a 10th of the world’s power. That would cut down dioxide emissions by a billion tons a year.

· BP has created a website for people to understand how they can reduce their impact on the environment every day using a concept called the greencurve.
