International competition for solar living.
The Solar Decathlon, an international competition for tertiary institutions, offers students a unique opportunity to implement architectural designs which would normally remain theoretical during their studies. Teams from various universities can realise their designs for energy-plus buildings, which in the annual balance produce more solar power than is necessary for operation, and see how they stand up to the demands of reality while competing against other ambitious projects.
