Solar Decathlon

You are here

From storm-resistant shelters to breezy dwellings that open like a flower, the solar-powered houses in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2015 are as diverse and creative as the teams behind them. Each was inspired by the unique cultures, experiences and landscapes of its creators, who represent more than 20 colleges and universities around the world.
All their hard work and ingenuity will be on display October 8 through 18 at the 2015 Solar Decathlon’s grand finale in Irvine, California. Learn more about the teams.
