NJIT and Chinese Tech Institute join forces for 2013 Solar Decathlon in China
Date:1/18/2013

ersity of New Jersey to participate in the 2011 US Department of Energy Solar Decathlon in Washington, DC. Team NJ's entry, eNJoy: A Generation House, involved a two-plus year collaborative effort to design, build, and operate a solar-powered home that was cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. More than a dozen graduate and undergraduate students labored on it, some even returning after graduation to participate. Eighteen other built entries, hailing from as far away as New Zealand and China, competed in the futuristic display. Houses were scored on architecture; market appeal; engineering; communications; affordability; comfort zone; hot water; appliances; home entertainment; and energy balance.

The eNJoy house was designed around a central core structure which contained integrated heating, cooling and electrical systems. It was the first house in the competition's history to use precast concrete panels as the primary construction material for its energy-efficiency. "Concrete is cool in summer and can be heated efficiently and affordably in winter," said Garber.
