‘Team UOW is dedicated to creating an innovative and sustainable future that celebrates life’

After being declared winners in the Solar Decathlon China 2013, Team UOW is excited to once again engage in a sustainable design that celebrates human life in all its diversity. The Solar Decathlon is an international competition that challenges collegiate teams to design, construct and operate solar powered houses that are sustainable, stylish and cost effective. Due to many parts of the world experiencing an increase in life expectancy and a decreased fertility rate there is a heightened emphasis on the ageing population and their changing needs, which Team UOW aim to address with our house, the Desert Rose.
