UAB, in partnership with Calhoun Community College and the University of Alabama in Huntsville, is one of 16 collegiate teams from around the world selected to participate in the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon 2017 competition. Over the next two years, an interdisciplinary team of students from across the university will be engaged in a long-term process to design and build a house that is powered completely by solar power.

 

 

Creating a More Sustainable Future

The U.S., and particularly Alabama, lags behind the rest of the world in renewable energy. By searching for innovative ways of harnessing and conserving energy, UAB students will have opportunities to develop technology that will be customized to meet the particular challenges of the local environment—from seasonal heat and humidity to surprise tornadoes and thunderstorms .
