Solar Decathlon (SD) is initiated by the US Department of Energy in 2001 and hosted for the first time. It faces the residential building and renewable energy technology competitions of universities around the world. It aims to explore solar buildings oriented to the 21st century and promote construction and energy conservation. The combination with new technology was first introduced to China in 2013.
Solar Decathlon China (SDC), after its successful inauguration in the City of Datong, Shanxi Province in 2013, comes to China again.This time the final competition will be held in AugustOctober, 2018 in Dezhou,Shandong Province. Aiming for permanent usage, the competition requires teams to build a single-or two-story solar house with a finished area of 120m-200m , and will be competing in the following ten contests.
自 2002 年开始，由美国能源部发起，已经成功举办15 届。
Organized by the US Department of Energy: Since 2002, initiated by the US Department of Energy, it has been successfully held for 15 sessions.
Sino-US Energy Cooperation Project: This competition is jointly organized by the National Energy Administration of China, the US Department of Energy, and the China Overseas Industrial Development Association.
国际高校参与：参赛团队覆盖包括美国、欧洲、中国在内的全球百 余所高校。 International University Participation: The participating teams cover more than 100 universities around the world including the United States, Europe, and China.

The SD competition has always been a technology competition that brings together the world's top design and innovation forces, an "Expo" about green development and future lifestyles. At the same time, SD China has injected new blood and vitality into the SD competition. 10,000+ reports covered more than 3 million broadcast audiences, attracted more than 760,000 public visitors, and attracted the attention of 300+ government officials, university leaders, and 200+ corporate executives.
As China changes its economic development model, the 14th "Five-Year Plan" focuses on expanding the clean energy industry. At present, the problem of large energy consumption in buildings is becoming more and more prominent, and getting rid of dependence on high-emission energy has become an urgent desire from the government to the public. The holding of the SDC competition is of great and far-reaching significance: boosting the industry: through the integration of solar energy application technology and construction technology, accelerate the integration process of solar energy technology and construction integration, and accelerate the in-depth innovation in the field of solar energy applications.
Use event operations as a platform to promote multi-party exchanges and cooperation between enterprises, universities, governments, and non-profit organizations, and become a platform for exchanges and interactions between all parties in the industry chain.
Give college students a special opportunity to learn about the most cutting-edge applications of new energy and energy-saving technologies, directly participate in world-class competitions and learning, and lay the foundation for becoming industry leaders.
use revolutionary technology and forward-looking creativity to show examples of modern houses that emphasize both "visual effects" and "application effects", and spark ideas for scientific research in energy, architecture and related fields.
through the display of real life in the "solar house", raise public awareness of solar energy technology and energy-saving products, promote green consumption and environmental protection and energy-saving concepts, and promote the development of regional strategic emerging industries.
The competition will be held in Zhangjiakou City, Hebei Province from September to October 2021. It will focus on the "two-zone" construction goal of the 2022 Winter Olympics in Zhangjiakou, the national renewable energy demonstration zone, the capital water conservation functional zone and the ecological environment support zone. The three propositions of “sustainable development, smart interconnection, and living health” are the challenges of this competition. The organizing committee selects 17 university teams from all over the world to design and build a solar energy green and energy-saving ecology that has both demonstration significance and promotion value houses.
