A self-sufficient home with solar panels on the facades only

EPFL, the School of Engineering and Architecture of Fribourg, the Geneva School of Art and Design and the University of Fribourg are taking part together in the 2017 international Solar Decathlon competition. Students have designed a house called NeighborHub that gets all its energy from solar panels installed only on the building’s facades. The NeighborHub will open its doors to the public next Saturday.
