Secretary of Energy Samuel Bodman spoke at the opening ceremony of the Solar Decathlon on Friday. Afterward, students from the different teams (these students are from Cornell University) met the secretary and had their photo taken.
Assistant Secretary of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Andy Karsner, standing at the podium, also spoke at the opening ceremony.
"I have to confess that being part of the Solar Decathlon is, in my experience, one of the best things about being energy secretary," Bodman said during his speech. "These houses, which are the result of your hard work, are all marvels of engineering and design, of creativity and innovation."
