Ghent University selected for Solar Decathlon 2019

(20-12-2017) Ghent University is proud to announce it has been selected to participate in the next edition of Solar Decathlon Europe in 2019, Szentendre, Hungary.

The Solar Decathlon is a prestigious international competition between universities to design, build and operate an energy-efficient dwelling. For the competition in Hungary, the focal point was renovating the existing building stock.

The Department of Architecture and Urban Planning conviced the jury with their proposal: "The Mobble". A team of motivated students guided by Marc De Kooning and Nathan Van Den Bossche developed an innovative and ambitious concept:
- Modular and flexible building unit: from tiny house to temporary extension
- Advanced prefab panels to renovate existing appartment blocks
- IoT-controlled HVAC with personal ventilation, heating and cooling

In Hungary, Ghent University will challenge University teams from the US, Spain, Italy, Thailand, The Netherlands, Romania, England, Denmark, France...
