The Solar Decathlon is an internationally renowned architecture and engineering competition that allows participating universities to explore innovative and sustainable living. Twenty interdisciplinary teams of students from around the world design and build an energetically self-sufficient solar house and compete for 2 weeks in ten categories. Originally launched by the U.S. Department of Energy in 2002, the competition has been held in Europe every other year since 2008. Our Team, “Team Lucerne – Suisse”, is the first Swiss team competing in Solar Decathlon. In July 2014, we will present our project your+ in Versailles.
