Team UOW is in the final stages of preparing for the 2013 Solar Decathlon China in August.

The Solar Decathlon China “challenges collegiate teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. The winner of the competition is the team that best blends affordability, consumer appeal, and design excellence with optimal energy production and maximum efficiency.”

It took the team a year to design the house. A team of 30 have been constructing the house, which has taken nearly three months.
