Virginia Tech Solar Decathlon Middle East Team
In 2018, Virginia Tech will compete in the Solar Decathlon Middle East as the only U.S.-based team in a competitive pool of 21 universities worldwide. The team won the Solar Decathlon Europe in 2010 with LumenHAUS. With FutureHAUS Dubai, Virginia Tech builds on 16 years of faculty-student research in solar home design, modular construction, and smart home technology. We aim to create a solar home that shows the power of research, the importance of collaboration, and that serves as a model of design, efficiency, and affordability for Dubai and for future homes worldwide.
