This photo is from the Spring Lunch event that we held for our sponsors. This is how Solveig looked like then. However, we can’t be more excited about the Car Unveiling event that will be on Monday the 28th of August, as we’ll then show the entire Solveig for the first time. Keep the date!

We regularly visit events. The first photo is from Jönköpings Marknad, which we attended together with Jönköping Energi. The second photo is from the event “Garden Party with Handelskammaren”. Both of the events were a lot of fun and we like it a lot when people ask us questions!


If you want us to come to one of your events, just get in touch with us!

Today, you find us at Jönköpings Marknad together with Jönköping Energi. This company helps us with marketing in different ways – for example we’ll be on the big billboard over Munksjön from June-July and also in the magazine Blixten Magazine that will be published in June. Here comes a presentation about the company.


Good power for a good society is Jönköping Energi’s vision. They want to contribute to and drive the development of the region’s future infrastructure. With them, it is easy to be a costumer. They are close, and together with their customers they contribute to a sustainable society. Today they provide about 55 000 customers with light, power, heating, cooling, biogas and network. They turnover 1.3 billion every year and have 270 employees.


We like Jönköping Energi a lot – thank you for being our sponsor! And don’t forget to come and say hi at the market today!

Between Wednesday and Friday this week we were in Stockholm due to the University Steel Prize. When we arrived on Wednesday, we had some rehearsals to do before we went to Paul’s Haymarket for a very nice dinner (thank you Linda and Anna!).


Thursday was the big day. At 10:20 we entered the stage for the prize giving ceremony of the tremendous University Steel Prize, and there was so much excitement and happiness in the air! Here’s a Winner Interview movie. The day continued with fika, lunch, mingle, photographing and  inspiring seminars presented by Jörgen Oom and Mike Walsh among others – such an amazing day! Later on, after some resting and dressing up, it was time for the award gala. We got to enjoy bubbles, a lovely three course dinner, music, dancing and entertainment, and the winner of the Swedish Steel Prize was announced too. Congratulations Kiruna Wagon from Sweden with the innovative solution Helix Dumper!


We didn’t stay too long on Friday. We got up to have some breakfast at the hotel and then we checked out and went home to Jönköping with the prizes: a Dala horse, a check of 20 000 SEK, a diploma and flowers. We really had an amazing time in Stockholm and we’re so grateful about the University Steel Prize that took us there!

Last Thursday we had our event Spring Lunch together with and dedicated to our sponsors. It was so much fun! First we mingled and had lunch wraps and drinks together. Afterwards, we gave them three different presentations and let them see our facilities, and there was also time for coffee and test driving. Here’s a bunch of photos from this fantastic day. And thank you all for doing this day amazing!




In the beginning of this year, we decided to arrange a sponsor event to show our sponsors how grateful we are about they helping us. When we decided to have this event, set the date for it (27th of April) and named it Spring Lunch, it felt like years until it was actually going to take place. But tomorrow it’s time! All team members are going to be here to have lunch together with our dear sponsors, mingle, show them Magic and Solbritt, hold presentations about our work and make this day very special for them (so we can’t reveal everything as the event is really for our sponsors!).


Besides cleaning our workshop, garage and desks for the Spring Lunch, we’ve worked hard to create a sponsor catalogue as well. This catalogue will be launched tomorrow when the sponsor event happens. And more? We’ve prepared the locations that we’ll use so that they’ll look nice, made special presentations and sent out nice information letters – inter alia. Anyway, we’re very excited about tomorrow’s Spring Lunch that we’ll host only for our sponsors!



Four days of meeting people, talking to them about our project and handing out candy and brochures, are now over. The car fair – Bilsport Performance and Custom Motor Show – at Elmia was a lot of fun and people were really interested in us and our solar cars. Thanks Elmia for this time – we’ll attend the fair again!




The fair Bilsport Performance and Custom Motor Show is the biggest car fair in Scandinavia. The fair has been a tradition since 1976 and takes place at Elmia every year during the Easter weekend. Last year, approximately 90 000 visitors came. In only three days, it’s time for this year’s edition and we will of course be there! You’ll find us and our solar cars in the B-hall and we hope to see YOU there! We’ll be there following days and times:


Friday the 14th of April, at 10:00-18:00
Saturday the 15th of April, at 10:00-18:00
Sunday the 16th of April, at 10:00-18:00
Monday the 17th of April, at 10:00-16:00

I onsdags hittade man JU Solar Team på Student Life Fair här i Jönköping. Mässan tog plats i Campus Arena där massor av studentföreningar och studentprojekt visade upp sig själva för att ge prov på vad som pågår på Jönköping University. Vi visade upp vår solbil Solbritt från år 2015, delade ut godispåsar, pratade med folk och hade en riktigt go stund. Här har ni en hoper foton att kika på! (Och glöm inte att spana in våra nya tröjor som vi hade på oss för första gången på mässan  – vi älskar dem!)


On Wednesday you could find the JU Solar Team at the Student Life Fair here in Jönköping. It was held at Campus Arena where various of student associations and projects had booths to show students what’s going on at Jönköping University. We had our solar car Solbritt (from 2015) there, handed out candy bags, talked to people and had a really nice time. Here is a bunch of photos – enjoy! (And don’t forget to check out our new sweatshirts that we wore for the first time at the fair  – we love them!)

Elmia Subcontractor: Day one

I dag var första dagen av Elmia Subcontractor och otroligt många utställare fanns på plats. Vi pratade med ett flertal underleverantörer och många kom förbi för att prata, tävla och se Solbritt in real life. Jättekul tycker vi! Nu väntar ytterligare tre dagars mässa. Glöm inte att följa oss på Instagram (@jusolarteam) och Facebook (Jönköping University Solar Team) om ni vill se mer av oss!


Today was the first day of Elmia Subcontractor and lots of exhibitors were there. We talked to various subcontractors and people came by to talk, compete and see Solbritt in real life. Super fun! Now we’ve got three more days at the fair. Don’t forget to follow our Instagram (@jusolaream) and Facebook (Jönköping University Solar Team) if you wanna see more of us!

Preparing for Elmia Subcontractor

I dag lastade vi bilen full med bord, ställ, bilder, kataloger och en massa andra grejer för att sedan åka vidare till Elmia. Även Solbritt fick åka med på ett släp bakom. Nästa vecka väntar som sagt Elmia Subcontractor mellan tisdag och fredag så därför var vi tvungna att förbereda oss inför mässan!


Today we filled the car with tables, racks, pictures, catalogues and lots of other things and thereafter we went to Elmia with Solbritt on a trailer behind us. Next week is Elmia Subcontractor – therefore we prepared for the fair!

Entreprenörsfesten Orange

Så, vad hände under kvällen? Entreprenörer visade upp sig, folk pitchade sina idéer, vi pratade med andra om oss och vårt projekt, det bjöds på mat och dryck, musik spelades med mera. Det hela handlade om entreprenörskap, som eventets namn avslöjar. Det var en bra och kul kväll!


So, what happened during the night? Entrepreneurs showed themselves, people pitched their ideas, we talked with others about us and our project, food and drinks were offered for free, musicians played etcetera. The whole thing was about entrepreneurship, as the name of the event reveals. It was fun!
