Solar Decathlon Europe 21/22 – experiences and findings
The Solar Decathlon is a competition for universities from all over the world to design, build and operate small experimental solar powered houses. Its first edition took place in the US in 2002. Since 2010 it is in practice in Europe with four competitions and 65 net zero or net energy plus houses build and tested in 10 disciplines (decathlon). The lecture provides an overview and initial experience and findings from the 22nd edition of the competition in Wuppertal, Germany. It represents a profiling on densification in the existing urban environmental, resource efficiency and carbon neutral energy supply towards climate neutrality.
