The U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon is a life-changing competition for collegiate students and an intensive course in sustainability for consumers.

Collegiate teams spend almost two years designing and building energy-efficient houses powered by the sun. In the final competition, the teams and their houses go head to head in 10 contests to determine an overall winner.

  • The 2017 competition has been enhanced with challenging new contests that emphasize:
  • Innovation
  • Water use and re-use strategies
  • Smart energy use
  • Market potential.

AURAK faculty and researchers visited the competition site during the assembly process.
