The Polytechnic University of Madrid - Solar Decathlon

The UPM (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid) has participated in the last two editions of Solar Decathon. In 2005 we took to contest a moving project we named the MAGIC BOX, which granted us the 9th place. In 2007 the project was named CASA SOLAR (solar home) which earned a 5th place. We invite you to investigate a little further in these projects by clicking the links below.
