An Israeli team will submit an entry for the prestigious Solar Decathlon China competition scheduled for August 2013. The competition will include academic teams from 20 countries who will compete for the title of champion of ecological construction.

The Israeli team, including members from Tel Aviv University, Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Neri Bloomfield School of Design and Education, and the College of Management Academic Studies, will present an innovative ecological (“green”) house that will generate more electricity than it needs to function. The team has been preparing for the competition since last year, when Dr. Yossi Kuri of the Department for Interior Design, Structure and Environment at Shenkar College, in cooperation with architect Chen Shalita, announced his intention to gather a team of students to compete in the upcoming event.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon Web page, Solar Decathlon China is the most recent addition to the international family of Solar Decathlon competitions.
