Proctor Group Australia sponsors Team UOW as they endeavour to build a net zero home for the international Solar Decathlon China competition.
Products including ProctorWrap vapour permeable membrane and DCT Tuff-R insulation were supplied to assist the team in achieving their sustainable retro-fit home.
The competition, run as a joint venture between the US Department of Energy and the China National Energy Administration, is the largest student-run competition in the world.
Held in Dantong, China it is estimated that over 500,000 people will attend the competition which spans over an area larger than that used in the Beijing Olympics.
The 30 student strong team, comprised of students from Wollongong TAFE and the University of Wollongong, aim to retro-fit an existing Australian fibro home with sustainable technologies making it the first of its kind ever entered into the competition.
