What is SDME

Competing Teams

The teams led by universities will engage students nationally and internationally to develop the skills and knowledge to become the next generation of energy experts.


The ten contests of Solar Decathlon ME 2018 contests will follow the lines of those in previous edition of the international competition. However, these contests will have the necessary customization to challenge the teams to adapt their designs to the heat, dust and high humidity that we experience during part of the year.
