Solar Decathlon Europe has announced the 20 teams that will participate in its 2012 competition. The teams hail from 15 countries and 4 continents.

The Solar Decathlon Europe 2012 teams are:

“We congratulate the 20 selected teams and hope to see, as in the 2010 edition, ‘research and development in pure state,’” said Spain’s Minister of Housing, Beatriz Corredor.

“The high level of the selected projects for 2012 assures that major advances will be made in a shorter period of time in the area of energy-efficient housing,” said Sergio Vega, project manager of Solar Decathlon Europe. “The participating teams will develop, within almost two years of competition, true solar homes, as seen in the last competition in June 2010 in Madrid, and demonstrate to the international market that it is possible to compete with these technologies.”

Solar Decathlon Europe is organized by the secretary of state for Housing and Urban Development at the Spanish Ministry of Public Works with the collaboration of Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and the support of the U.S. Department of Energy.
