SD Europe
Solar Decathlon Europe

In the Solar Decathlon, 20 different universities compete to design a home powered with sun energy and to build it until June 2010. Then the house of each team will be presented to the public in Madrid and the winners will be chosen.

Main objectives are:
  1. To generate knowledge on the industrialisation and sustainability of the homes, increasing suitable scientific benefits, as well as, the dissemination of the knowledge.
  2. To make both students and the general public aware of the environmental and sustainability issues, especially of the responsible use of energy and natural resources, promoting the use of the renewable energies.
  3. To maximise the publicity of the event by taking advantage of the competition’s characteristics and potential to achieve the maximum media coverage and public information.
