While the 2010 competition was Virginia Tech's third Solar Decathlon, the Solar Decathlon Europe was the first time a Solar Decathlon competition has been organized and run in Madrid, Spain. During past Solar Decathlons in Washington, D.C., more than 100,000 visitors flocked to the National Mall, to visit the "solar village." The Solar Decathlon Europe is an educational project of the Universidad Politecnica de Madrid and is supported by Spain's Ministry of Housing and event and team sponsors from the private sector. The houses were displayed Madrid's historical district in June 2010 and toured by the public.
