Who we are

SOLID is a yearly changing, multidisciplinary team of students from Eindhoven University of Technology. Founded in 2016, the team has grown expeditiously into a large and ambitious organization. We aim to further develop our skills, iron fuel technology and the ecosystem surrounding iron fuel. With the many different ongoing projects, we aim to accelerate and facilitate the energy transition. Our team currently consists of 30 students mostly from Eindhoven University of Technology with a great variety of students from the bachelor's and master's programs.

We strive to enable access to clean and renewable energy for anyone, at any time
