The 2013 China international solar decathlon (SD) was held in datong, Shanxi Province.   Launched and sponsored by the US Department of Energy (doe), 22 teams from 35 universities in 13 countries competed in datong, a historic and cultural city, with a new solar green application technology called "solar house".

The SD competition aims to design, build and operate a fully functional, comfortable, livable and sustainable solar house by closely combining solar energy, energy conservation and architectural design in an integrated new way with the technology and creativity of the world's leading r&d and design teams. It is hoped that the competition will accelerate the integration and exchange of the solar energy industry and promote the innovation, development and commercialization of related technologies.

The competition asked each team to build a 60-100 square meter solar house during the competition,each of entering the competition solar homes is powered entirely by solar energy and meets daily living requirements: equipped with televisions, refrigerators, cooking stoves, dishwashers, washing machines,computers and other daily household appliances and furniture and other living facilities. The competition will comprehensively assess the energy saving, physical environment control and energy self-sufficiency of each entry, and determine the final ranking through ten individual event appraisal, so it is called the "decathlon" competition.

In this competition, Foshan AnMeiJie Light Steel House Co., Ltd. provided a lot of technical support to students of Tel Aviv University and shenkar college of engineering and design.AnMeiJie uses years of building experience and technology to bring the students' concept tocome true. In the competition, Israel's 4E House, which was built with great efforts, won the second place in the subjective competition award -- architectural design category, and the objective competition award -- hot water supply and energy balance.
