Milano and the Solar Decathlon: Beyond the Competition

12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m.

John Clinton, associate professor and director of Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management (EPSM) at the Milano School of International Affairs, Management, and Urban Policy, moderates a panel discussion, “Milano and the Solar Decathlon: Beyond the Competition.”

Panelists include Blaise Rastello and Kevin McQueen, director and assistant director of the Community Development Finance Lab; Nonprofit Management student Jennifer Terry; and EPSM part-time faculty member John Stinar and students Gal Gabriel and Heather Zanoni. Panelists will discuss The New School’s participation in the Solar Decathlon, an award-winning program sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy that challenges college teams to design, construct, and operate solar-powered houses.

The interdisciplinary team, composed of students from Parsons The New School for Design, the Milano, and the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey, designed a building called Empowerhouse. The project, which won first place in the Affordability Contest, now serves as a model of sustainable affordable housing for Habitat for Humanity in Washington, DC. Empowerhouse demonstrates the practical impact of New School students' design work in the real world.
