Lime Orchard is proud to be associated with 'Nottingham H.O.U.S.E', Nottingham University's entry in the Solar Decathlon 2010, to be held in Madrid in June.
A 40 strong team of students from The University of Nottingham are representing Britain in the first ever Solar Decathlon Europe – an international house building competition featuring the very latest in sustainable solar architecture- which takes place in Madrid between June 18 and 27.
The Nottingham H.O.U.S.E (a family home optimising the use of solar energy) is competing against 19 other universities from across the world to design, build and test drive Europe’s most energy efficient home. Academics, researchers and students from the various disciplines in the Department of the Built Environment have partnered with a select group of industrial sponsors and specialist consultants to make the project possible.
The students are also working with award winning garden designer Ian Dexter from Lime Orchard and Michelin star Chef Sat Bains to provide and grow ecologically sourced food which will form part of the dining experience in the house during the competition in Spain
