About us

We strive for a sustainable future, where life is powered by the sun. As a student team, we have the power and freedom to be innovative.

Our mission

We are Solar Team Eindhoven, a team of 16 enthusiastic and ambitious students from the Eindhoven University of Technology. We strive for a sustainable future, where life is powered by the sun. As a student team, we have the power and freedom to be innovative. Not limited by market demands we can start the design process from scratch and free ourselves from preconceptions. This means that we, unlike the industry, can bridge the gap between technological innovation and our daily life. This allows us to innovate fast in a short time. By creating innovative, energy-efficient solar vehicles we inspire the current market and society to accelerate the transition to a more sustainable future - in both mobility and energy.

In a single hour, the amount of power from the sun that strikes the Earth is more than the entire world consumes in a year. By using our greatest energy source, the sun, we can make mobility not about energy consumption rather energy production. We believe that the solution for a sustainable future in mobility lies in the vehicles themselves. By means of solar panels on your vehicle you are independent of the charging infrastructure. By creating innovative, energy-efficient solar vehicles we inspire the current market and society to accelerate the transition to a sustainable future - in both mobility and energy.
