The audience of “El Ser Creativo”, will be able to wisit the models of sustainable solar houses that will participate in Solar Decathlon Europe 2012. ( “Palacio de Deportes”, Madrid, Avda. Felipe II, s/n).

With the participation of Solar Decathlon Europe on “El Ser Creativo”, the public will be able to learn,  not only  the most avant-garde thoughts of our times (21 leaders, scientists, thinkers and Nobel Prize will attend on the Congress) , but also the innovative sustainable housing created by universities from 15 countries.

SDE being held in Spain shows that Spain has become a focal point in research and use of renewable energy in buildings and energy efficiency implementation in houses. The objective of this international competition, in addition to generating new knowledge, is to create awareness among the general public on the rational use of energy. And also to demonstrate that a more efficient energy use is possible and affordable, if buildings are constructed to avoid losing heat in winter and staying cool in summer, therefore resulting  in  less heating and air conditioning, utilizing less consuming appliances, and getting the energy needed through renewable sources such as the sun.

Solar Decathlon Europe is organized by the Secretary of State for Housing and Urban Development at the Spanish Ministry of Public Works with the collaboration of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and the support of the US Department of Energy. In addition, SDE has the collaboration of the Madrid City Council and Spanish Energy Saving Energy Agency IDAE, and the sponsorship of Saint-Gobain (main sponsor), Schneider Electric, Rockwool, Kömmerling and FCC.

Solar Decathlon Europe has been endorsed by the European Commission’s Sustainable Energy Europe Campaign as an Official Partner.

The UE “Sustainable Energy Europe Award 2011” has been given to Solar Decathlon Europe in the category of “Communication”.
