The UWM School of Architecture and Urban Planning (SARUP) is pleased to have been selected as one of 20 international teams, and the only team from Wisconsin, to participate in the 2009 Solar Decathlon Competition (sponsored by the US Department of Energy). The competition promises to provide unique benefits and learning opportunities for our students, faculty, sponsors and the community.
The UWM entry in the competition will be designed and first built in Wisconsin before it is shipped to Washington DC for installation on the National Mall in fall 2009. To produce a winning design UWM SARUP will seek the engagement of businesses, organizations, foundations and individuals as competition sponsors. Media and event exposure from last year’s (2007) Solar Decathlon competition reached an audience of more than 1 billion. As interest in renewable energy and carbon neutral design heightens, the audience for the 2009 event is expected to be even larger.
UWM SARUP has identified recognition opportunities for 2009 Solar Decathlon Sponsors. Financial support and tangible in-kind sponsorships to the Solar Decathlon project via the UWM Foundation are tax deductible as allowed by law and by Foundation practices. The list of sponsorship opportunities provided by UWM SARUP is not finite. We are open to discussion of other sponsorships related to the 2009 Solar Decathlon Competition.
