Build Challenge Community Exhibitions

Teams competing in the Solar Decathlon Build Challenge will showcase their unique homes during community exhibitions across the globe.

These teams are designing and building complete, functional houses to demonstrate creative solutions for real-world issues in the building industry. During each community exhibition, teams will offer comprehensive tours of their houses to the general public.

Out of an abundance of caution, the U.S. Department of Energy is postponing these community exhibitions. We are gathering information on the best options for new dates and will share that information as soon as it becomes available. If you have any questions, please email
