Under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid A1 Maktoum, Crown Prince of
Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Executive Council, Solar Decathlon Middle East is a collegiate competition
of .10 contests that challenge students to design and build solar-powered houses
On June 17, 2015, the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority, and the U.S. Department of Energy signed an agreement to collaborate on the development of Solar Decathlon Middle .East (SDME 2018-2020), a competition that will integrate unique local and regional characteristics
The 2018 edition of this competition is organized by DEWA, in Dubai at the Mohammed bin Rashid A1 Mak- toum Solar Park. SDME consists of 10 contests that will follow the lines of those in previous editions of the competition, although having the necessary customization to challenge the teams to adapt their designs to the heat, dust & high humidity that we experience in the Middle East. The projects are developed by multidis- ciplinary teams, giving the students the opportunity to learn about technical issues, teamwork, communica- .tion skills, and sustainable lifestyle and socio-economic issues in order to ensure the viability of their project
The Solar Decathlon Middle East (SDME) was created through an agreement signed between Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) and Department of Energy of the United States of America.
