Solar Decathlon India: Future-Ready and Future Proof Buildings

Prasad Vaidya , Jaydeep Bhadra | 2020 


The Solar Decathlon India is an initiative to create the next generation building industry workforce to combat Climate Change. The international competition platform will reach out to 500,000 engineering and architecture students across India, and more in the rest of the world, and invite them to design net-zero-energy-water-waste buildings that are also resilient to climate change impacts. The student teams will develop affordable and market-ready solutions with the help of mentors provided during this year-long annual challenge. Their work will be showcased to industry, investors and government officials to move the construction industry toward these solutions. Solar Decathlon India will be open for registration in June 2020.
