The international university competition "Solar Decathlon Europe 21" (SDE21) in Wuppertal has been postponed due to Coronavirus. The decision to delay the inter-national university competition, due to take place in September 2021, is a reaction to the current COVID-19 pandemic. A new date has been set for June 2022.
The decathlon for urban building and living was due to take place in Wuppertal in September 2021. The decision was taken by the organising team in close agreement with partners and the participating teams.
In the research project European Energy Endeavour, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi) supports the further development of the European Solar Decathlon. The project "SDE21 – Solar Decathlon Europe 21 Goes Urban" is implemented by the University of Wuppertal (BUW) in cooperation with the City of Wuppertal, the Wuppertal Institute, the initiative Utopiastadt ("Utopia City"), the Wuppertaler Stadtwerke and the Neue Effizienz GmbH.
