Solar Decathlon Europe 2010

The Solar Decathlon Europe (SD Europe) 2010 was created through an agreement signed between the Government of Spains Ministry of Housing and the United States Government, who committed to organize a sustainable solar architecture competition in Europe. In October 2007, both governments signed an agreement (a Memorandum of Understanding) as part of the Solar City framework of the Solar Decathlon 2007. Nineteen top universities from around the world were selected to participate in the 2010 competition, which will be held in Madrid. Their participation in the competition will undoubtedly serve to raise the visibility and prestige of those institutions. This initiative touches on the priorities and objectives of both the European Union and the Spanish Government, including the promotion of and firm commitment to research and innovation applied to an issue of global strategic interest. Improvements will be made not only in energy efficiency, but also in sustainability in a sector that is as sensitive and important to the economy as construction.
