The Nuon Solar Team has been building and racing solar cars since 2001. They have participated in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge eight times and placed first six times. The race is 3000+ kilometres through the desert of Australia from Darwin to Adelaide or in South Africa from Pretoria to Cape Town, were this team of students from the Technical University Delft have done their utmost best to win the race. The Keynote speaker here is Winnifred Noorlander, she has been studying Civil Engineering at the Technical University since 2013. Since the beginning of this year she has been responsible for the Public Relations of the Nuon Solar Team. She takes care of organizing events for the team and also helps with manufacturing the solar car whenever possible. With a passion for high-end technologies and sustainability she will do everything she can to keep the world title solar racing in Holland.
