Hungary’s government has allocated 3.0 billion forints (EUR 9.3m) in funding to host Solar Decathlon Europe 2019, a resolution published in the official gazette Magyar Közlöny shows. The funding comprises 1.5 billion forints for infrastructure investments and 1.2 billion for the contest’s implementation. Modelled after the United States Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon, the Solar Decathlon Europe is an international competition that challenges university teams to design and build houses that are powered exclusively by the sun. The first Solar Decathlon Europe took place in Spain in 2010.
