Sustainability expert Ingersoll Rand has announced it will sponsor the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Solar Decathlon 2013. The Solar Decathlon is a world-famous, award-winning program that challenges 20 global college teams to design, build and operate solar-powered houses that are cost-effective, energy-efficient and attractive.

The winner is selected based on criteria that includes affordability, consumer appeal and energy efficiency and output. The competition will take place at the Orange County Great Park in Irvine in California between October 3 and 13.

Solar Decathlon is a biennial program that launched in 2002. The last edition in 2011 was the first one in which a foreign team took part of the challenge. The project was called First Light and was devised by 25 students from Victoria University in New Zealand. The name was inspired by the fact that New Zealand is the place in the world on which the sun rises first.
