Over the past two decades Vattenfall Solar team, consisting of students from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands, has won ten world titles and set two world records. The team's main mission has always been to push the boundaries of what is technically possible and to inspire the world to aim for a sustainable future where energy is used as efficiently as possible. In October, the team aims to win the Australian world championship again. This will however be the last time with Vattenfall as the main sponsor.
Vattenfall has been the main sponsor of the Vattenfall Solar Team since 2001 but after introducing a new sponsorship strategy it was decided that the agreement with the Vattenfall Solar Team will not be extended after 2021.
The new team is already working hard to do just that and the 17 students from Delft University of Technology selected for the new team will be presented in due course. From 2022 onwards, the team will continue with a new main sponsor.
