SOLHO has been awarded the VIDA demonstration voucher. The grant will allow further development and testing of advanced control strategies on the SPRHOUT PoC. The SPRHOUT is one step closer to be operated completely unmanned.Vida project
The SPRHOUT PoC has been successfully operated for 10 months demonstrating its capabilities in covering the energy load of the greenhouse farm in different weather conditions
The first step towards off-grid solar-based horticultural projects has been made. The SPRHOUT (Solar Powered Off-grid Horticultural UniT) proof of concept is up and running in France. The system has been successfully commissioned in one week and it is now operating unmanned.
The construction of the SPRHOUT proof of concept is completed. The system is installed in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region next to a 3 heactare greenhouse producing kiwifruit. The facility's performance will be assessed during 2019.
SOLHO was selected among the 18th finalist at the SET Award 2018
as part of the Start-up Energy Transition festival, and was awarded the first prize in the category "Energy, Water and Food".
SOLHO entered stage II of the Climate KIC Accelerator programme
SOLHO received funds from the NWO and the Zuid-Holland Province to develop SOLHO's Proof of Concept. The system is planned to be built and operational by the end of 2018.
SOLHO was selected among the EU Top 50 Millenial start-ups. We had the opportunity to pitch our vision at the Hemicycle European parliament, and we got honored by the US-based philanthropic organization IEEE.
SOLHO is now part of the Climate-KICaccelerator program Stage I
SOLHO was honored to be selected among the top-10 clean-tech start ups at the event and be able to pitch at the EnergyFest at the Shell Technology center in Amsterdam.
After a tough selection, SOLHO joined the Yes!Delft incubation program
