    1.To educate the student participants—the “Decathletes”—about the benefits of energy efficiency, renewable energy and green building technologies.

    2.To raise awareness among the general public about renewable energy and energy efficiency, and how solar energy technologies can reduce energy usage.

    3.To help solar energy technologies enter the marketplace faster.

    4.To foster collaboration among students from different academic disciplines.

    5.To promote an integrated or “whole building design” approach to new construction.

    6.To demonstrate to the public the potential of Zero Energy Homes, which produce as much energy from renewable sources, such as the sun and wind, as they consume.
