With a world screaming for green solutions, continuous innovation in sustainable technologies is a necessity. The Nuon Solar Team, a student team of the TU Delft, has successfully built solar cars over the last 16 years.
On the verge of their race in Australia (starting October 8th) the team will share their keys to their successes and their passion for a sustainable future. With their "eight winning factors" they will underline why a victory can never be taken for granted. Continuous research and development is a necessity, but still not a guarantee for succes.
Will they prolong their World Solar Challenge title once more?
Luka Jaksic is one of the members of the next Nuon Solar Team, a student team of Delft University of Technology. All members of the Nuon Solar Team devote one and a half year of their time to design, build and race the solar car.
He is currently running the back office in Delft, while the current team is finalizing their preparations for the well-known World Solar Challenge in Australia. With Nuna9 - our most advanced car yet - they will try to stay ahead of the looming competition.
The Nuon Solar Team is the all-time champion in the field of solar car racing. In October 2017 the Nuon Solar Team will participate in the World Solar Challenge in Australia for the ninth time. This is the ultimate sustainable challenge. Solar car 'Nuna' solely uses the energy of the sun during the race of 3000 kilometres through the Outback. The combination of the high-end technology, renewable energy and the excitement of the race reflects the vision of the Nuon Solar Team perfectly. During the race we push the limits of technology to inspire people towards a sustainable future in which energy is used in the most efficient way.
