International Student Contest Solar Decatlhon

Solar Decathlon began with the support of the U.S. Department of Energy in 2000 and is aimed at students who wish to design, construct and test high energy efficiency residential buildings using solar energy systems. The contest has received extensive coverage by the press and has become established for promoting student creativity and practical application of knowledge that students receive during their studies at the university. It also promotes fair play among universities and aims at raising public awareness of the benefits and economic viability of energy systems. The competition, in cooperation with the Spanish government, is also organized in Europe since 2010. To learn more about the IHU Student Solar Decathlon team please visit their webpage
