Solar Boat Twente encourages environmental awareness by the application of renewable energy in the maritime sector. The coming year a multidisciplinary team of dedicated and enthusiastic students will focus on building a reliable solar boat. By pushing the limits of technological innovation, the team embraces a great challenge: designing and building the motorboat of tomorrow. The goal is to race for a podium position in the Solar Sport One competition in 2019. Follow us on our road to Monaco!

To be able to realize our improved, innovative solar boat this year, we need your help. We want to use new solar panels with higher efficiencies, with which we can produce up to 35% more energy! However, to make this happen we need financial support. Each solar cell costs around 25 Euros and we need over 500 cells, which means that we need a lot of money. By donating we would be able to power our boat completely by the sun and cross the finish line at full speed!
