Amsterdam / Delft, October 25th 2017 - The Nuon Solar Team opened the Amsterdam Stock
Exchange this morning. Euronext Amsterdam invited the Dutch student team in celebration
of their victory at the world championship solar car racing: the Brdigestone World Solar
Challenge in Australia. The Nuon Solar Team has participated nine times already, the team
has brought the world championship trophy to the Netherlands seven times.
With the sounding of the gong they, moreover, heralded the start of a new year. One in which they
will work towards another race and redevelop solar car Nuna9 after a full year of R&D. The team will
focus more than ever on high-tech innovations.
Mobility of the future
Their convincing victory does not create room for complacency, according to new team manager Jelle
van der Lugt (23). "This year we've for example added a new function to the Nuon Solar Team:
Sofware. We are set to make major steps in IT-related fields. We are not only aiming at winning the
race in South Africa; we also want to make ‘the mobility of the future’, tomorrow’s mobility.”
