Solar Decathlon is an international competition in which universities from all over the world meet to design, build and operate a grid-connected, energetically self-sufficient house.

The houses use solar energy as the only energy source and are equipped with all the technologies that permit maximum energy efficiency.

During the final phase of the competition teams assemble their houses, open to the general public, while undergoing the ten contests of the competition, reason for which this event is called Decathlon.

Since the first competition in 2002, the Solar Decathlon has expanded internationally to include four additional worldwide competitions: Solar Decathlon China, Solar Decathlon Europe, Solar Decathlon Latin America and Caribbean, and now Solar Decathlon Middle East.
