Solar Decathlon Competition 2013

What do you get when you mix solar-powered houses, teams of university students from across the globe, and a two-year-long competition? The answer: the Energy Department’s Solar Decathlon, which has a 10-year history of preparing the next wave of energy leaders to enter the workforce.

 Throughout the years, the award-winning Solar Decathlon has been honored for its commitment to educating the next   generation  of engineers and architects. Most recently, the program was recognized as one of this year’s Bright Ideas -- an award presented by the Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government to innovative government initiatives that demonstrate creative solutions to issues of public concern.

This year's Solar Decathlon event will be held in Irvine, California, on October 3-13, 2013.

20 teams from universities around the world will compete in the Solar Decathlon 2013.  

The teams have already been chosen for this year's decathlon, but get your team ready for next year!
