Solar energy is an alternative energy source that is moving into the mainstream and nothing proves this more than the Solar Decathlon. In these competitions, university students from around the world display family-friendly off-the-grid homes that they design and build themselves. In October 2011, the Solar Decathlon was held on the Washington Mall in Washington, DC (US) where students competed in 10 different categories, including affordability, thus demonstrating that it is possible to afford and live quite comfortably in a sustainable home. The Solar Decathlon Europe takes place in Madrid, Spain in September of this year and the Solar Decathlon China will take place in August 2013 in Datong.
