Event Description

On November 15, 2016, in the margin of COP22 in Marrakesh, the Moroccan Ministry of Energy, Mines and sustainable development; the Moroccan Research Institute in Solar Energy and New Energies (IRESEN); and the U.S. Department of Energy signed a memorandum of understanding to collaborate on the development of Solar Decathlon AFRICA, a competition that will integrate unique local and regional characteristics while following the philosophy, principles, and model of the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon. The competition will take place in September 2019.

Solar Decathlon AFRICA is an international competition for green buildings, which challenges collegiate teams to design, build and operate grid-connected, attractive and net-zero-energy houses during an eighteen-month period. In the final event of the competition, teams assemble their modular houses in the solar village and they are open to the general public, while undergoing the ten contests of the competition.
