Illinois Solar Decathlon (ISD) is a RSO which competes in the Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon competition, an annual collegiate competition that challenges interdisciplinary teams of student architects, designers, and engineers from across the globe. ISD has three independent teams, namely the Design Team, Build Team and Concept Team! ISD participates in the Build Challenge to fully design and build a functional home completely powered by renewable energy, and fitted with a variety of modern sustainable technology and small-footprint design innovations. ISD also participates in the Design Challenge, which requires creative and diverse minds to come together and present their designs to a panel of industry expert jurors, compare their projects to those of other teams, learn from presentations by thought leaders and collegiate peers, and engage with a variety of organizations about energy careers. For beginners interested in sustainability, we have a Concept Team, where they will apply new skills to concept-driven design problems and present projects to Illinois Solar Decathlon team leaders and faculty advisors.
This year, the Build Team will be finishing its design phase and starting its construction phase as soon as possible to finish the sustainable home for the summer competition. The Design Team will begin a new project for the Design Challenge at NREL (Golden, CO) in 2021. The Concept Team will introduce members to ISD and work on sustainability projects for the University.
