The Solar Decathlon Europe was the first intrepid step toward
the internationalisation of the outstanding competition
in plus-energy architecture.
The SDE is one of five international chapters of the formidable international competition
in sustainable housing & habitation. Initiated in 2002 by the U.S. Department of Energy,
the Solar Decathlon has become a worldwide phenomenon. The first European edition took place
in Madrid in 2010. Further editions in Europe occurred in 2012 (Madrid), 2014 (Versailles) and 2019 (Szentendre).
The first Asian edition of the Solar Decathlon took place in 2013 in Datong, China.
Movement & momentum propelled the Solar Decathlon to Cali, Colombia in December 2015.
Furthermore, we welcomed new Solar Decathlon family members, in 2018, in Dubai and China and in 2019, in Morocco and Colombia.
Future SD competitions are scheduled for 2020 (U.S.A. and Middle East) and 2021 (Europe and China). More information about these editions & their respective organisations can be found below on the official websites.
