Our research affiliations
At Solinoor, we believe that the creation and integration of new knowledge serves as an important factor for enabling a sustainable future. For this reason, we are eager to collaborate with universities, research institutes and consortia to continously bring our standards and ambitions to a higher level. By enabling students and researchers to learn from our practical experiences, Solinoor is at the forefront of the energy transition.
As Solinoor engages in numerous research projects of students and researchers, we foster research by providing the opportunity for new insights to be tested and applied in practice.

Solinoor Consultancy Report
Research conducted by 5 Innovation Sciences master students from Utrecht University. This consultancy report provides insights into the socio-technical drivers and barriers concerning the adaptation of the horticulture sector to use green hydrogen as an alternative and sustainable source of energy.
Electrofuels in the maritime sector
A master's thesis that highlights the drivers and barriers for electrofuels (e-fuels) use in the maritime sector stemming from multi-system dynamics. Policy measures are proposed to phase out fossil fuels and stimulate e-fuels.
Floating photovoltaics & electrolysis (IEEE paper)
A literature review about the complementarity of floating photovoltaics (FPV) and green hydrogen production through electrolysis. The system increases efficiency, reduces evaporation, and stimulates multi-functional space usage.
Floating photovoltaics & electrolysis (poster)
A one-page literature review summary about the complementarity of floating photovoltaics (FPV) and green hydrogen production through electrolysis.
GAZO - Gelderse Aanpak Zonnevelden met Omgevingskwaliteit
Solinoor has joined Wageningen University & Research (WUR) and Province of Gelderland in the GAZO research innitiative to accelerate the energy transtion, multi-functional usage of space, achieving municipal ambitions, participation, and environmental quality. Research publication in progress.
SPARKLES consortium - impacts of floating solar
Solinoor joined a consortium led by NIOO-KNAW (Netherlands Institute of Ecology) to assess technological, ecological and social impacts of floating solar energy. Research publication in process.
MSc Innovation Sciences - Consultancy project
In May 2022, Solinoor has welcomed a team of talented Innovation Sciences master students from Utrecht University (left to right): Stan ter Burg, Timo van Arkel, Rutger Schreur, Hugo Hofstede, and Daan Pisa.
During their activities at Solinoor they performed research whereby their thesis question revolved around “Evaluating the current state, barriers and potentials of the horticulture sector towards green hydrogen adaptation produced by solar energy.” Their finalised consultancy report helped Solinoor and the industry to understand better if and how hydrogen produced by solar energy can serve as an alternative energy solution for greenhouses.

Wageningen University & Research (WUR) and Province of Gelderland
As our land availability is limited, we have to make multi-functional use of it. To share our experience and ambitions, Solinoor has joined the "Gelderland Approach to Solar Fields with Environmental Quality project" (in Dutch: Gelderse Aanpak Zonnevelden met Omgevingskwaliteit - GAZO) which is a joined research initiative of the province of Gelderland and Wageningen University & Research (WUR). This five year project includes six innovative solar field examples whereby there is a clear focus on accalerating the energy transtion, multi-functional usage of space, achieving municipal ambitions, participation, and environmental quality.
Netherlands Institute of Ecology (NIOO-KNAW)
Solinoor has joined the SPARKLES consortium led by the led by NIOO-KNAW (Netherlands Institute of Ecology) to conduct research into the use of floating solar panels. The consortium, consisting of scientists and public and private partners, aims to determine the technological, ecological and social conditions for sustainable use of floating solar energy in different landscapes.The research is aimed at contributing to the energy transition and the conservation of biodiversity in the Netherlands, where floating solar panels can help generate clean energy without affecting agricultural or residential areas.
At Solinoor we are always looking for ways to contribute to education and participation by staying in touch with students, academia and research institutes.
