SOLAR DECATHLON SML HOUSE 2010

PHOTOVOLTAIC FAÇADE

 

The European Solar Decathlon is an international university competition to boost research into the development of energy-efficient residences. The goal of the teams taking part is the design and construction of houses which consume a minimum quantity of natural resources and produce minimal waste during their life cycle. Special emphasis is given to reducing energy consumption and obtaining all the energy required from the sun.

Originally created by the U.S. Department of Energy, it has had a European counterpart since 2010.

 

The 2010 SML House, executed by the CEU Cardenal Herrera University, won first prize in the Market Feasibility and Industrialisation category.

 

Onyx Solar®’s participation in the project consisted of the integration of opaque amorphous silicon glass into the façade with a wooden lath substructure. The façade generates nearly 1,200 kWh of energy per year, sufficient to supply 70 lights cleanly and free of cost, thanks to the sun.

 

This house, fed solely by solar energy, was the best rated of those presented by Spanish universities and was the most voted by the 190,000 visitors to the competition held in Madrid.
