The Solar Decathlon Europe is an international competition that challenges collegiate teams to design and build houses powered exclusively by the sun. The winner of the competition is the team able to score the most points in 10 contests.

 

On Oct. 18, 2007, the Spanish and U.S. governments signed a memorandum of understanding in which the Spanish Ministry of Housing committed to organize and host Solar Decathlon Europe. The agreement was signed in Washington, D.C., next to the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid’s Casa Solar during the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2007 competition. The American signatory was Alexander A. Karsner, assistant secretary of the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Department of the U.S. Department of Energy, with Fernando Magro Fernández, undersecretary of housing of the Ministry of Housing representing the Spanish government.

 

This competition takes place during even years, alternating with the U.S.-based competition, by agreement between the United States and Spanish governments.

El desarrollo de los proyectos comenzó en 2011 en 19 universidades de 12 países (Alemania, Brasil, China, Dinamarca, Egipto, España, Francia, Hungría, Italia, Japón, Portugal, y Rumanía). Egipto no ha podido participar porque tuvo problemas en la aduana.

 

España ha aportado cinco equipos: Andalucía Team (Universidades de Granada, Jaén, Málaga y Sevilla) con la casa Patio 2.12; Universidad del País Vasco, casa EKI house; Politécnica de Cataluña, casa E(CO); CEU Valencia, casa SML system); y la Universidad de Zaragoza, con la casa Pi, que ha sustituido, a última hora, a un equipo noruego.

 

En la Puerta del Ángel (Casa de Campo), cada equipo ha construido su vivienda a tamaño real y durante dos semanas han competido entre ellos.

 

Los objetivos son concienciar y sensibilizar a los ciudadanos sobre la importancia del medio ambiente y la sostenibilidad, y promover el desarrollo sostenible a través de la investigación y la innovación aplicadas a la arquitectura y la construcción eficientes.
