TU Vienna is one of only two European teams (the other being from the Czech Republic) invited to SD 2013 to compete with the best from the United States and Canada.

As Austria´s first representative at SD 2013, TU Vienna will be competing against 19 other teams to design, build, and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient, and attractive. During the week-long competition, the twenty homes designed and built by student teams will be open to the public and evaluated by a jury.
