DOE publishes Solar Decathlon leaderboard

The US Department of Energy is publishing a frequently updated leaderboard of Solar Decathlon entrants' scores on its home page. Individual scores for each entrant school are also available. Taking a look at the University of Minnesota's score breakout reveals that the University's team is in second place in the appliances category (although scores are quite low across the board) and doing quite well in the architecture and market viability categories (with scores of 81 and 91 out of 100 respectively) but facing fierce competition from the other entrants. The University's entry is currently in seventh place overall.
