Stella Lux rocked the USA!

19 - 01 - 2017

Our West-coast trip in the USA is sadly over now, but we can look back with a very positive feeling. It is amazing to see how many people are inspired by Stella Lux and her technologies. The American people welcomed us with open arms and were interested in our story. A short summary of our trip:

After an amazing kickoff at the Laguna Seca circuit on Sunday, our week in Silicon Valley with Stella Lux continued with an event at the Bay Area Air Quality Management District in San Francisco. There, Dutch minister Henk Kamp and California governor Panorea Avdis signed a letter of intent to jointly invest in sustainable businesses. We then visited the UC Davis campus to meet with commissioner Scott from the California Energy Commission, a long-time supporter of Solar Team Eindhoven. That evening, Stella Lux escorted the attendants of the official trade mission dinner at the Glasshouse in San Jose.

Our visit to Prospect SV

 

On Tuesday, we visited Stanford for the emerging technologies summit and also took this opportunity to visit our friends at the Stanford Solar team. In the afternoon we also visited Prospect SV, an innovation hub in San Jose that also focusses clean energy innovations.

The week ended with a visit to our partner VDL’s offices in Fremont, where they explained the delegation all about their presence in the USA.
Lastly, we would like to thank all the partners in our project, this trip reaffirmed the strength of our partnerships with both businesses and academics!
