Solar Boat Team

We are the TU Delft Solar Boat Team, a group of 17 driven students from Delft University of Technology. With a multidisciplinary team, we aim to accelerate the transition to green energy. To reach our goal, we design, build and test a boat that sails completely on green energy in just one year.

This year, we want to realise our very first hydrogen-powered boat. With this boat, we will compete in the World Championships in the Monaco Open Sea Class: An exciting and competitive environment where we can demonstrate the feasibility of using hydrogen as renewable energy storage.

Hydrogen will be a big step for us. For the past 15 years, we have inspired the maritime industry with flying boats powered by solar energy. We even became World Champions in 2019. This year, with a hydrogen boat, we want to take the next step in promoting sustainability in the maritime sector.
