Research on solar energy

Research on solar energy

Fleur Rooker, a student at VU University Amsterdam, is researching the demand for solar energy among Women on Wings clients. Many products in the Netherlands and India are designed to harness solar power with better and more sustainable energy provision in mind. Solar energy can play an important role in female handiwork by offering more flexible working hours at various points throughout the day and evening.

The research question will primarily target the needs of Women on Wings clients. What are the requirements and conditions for working with solar energy? Which solar energy techniques best contribute to a more sustainable business?

Fleur Rooker studies Science, Business & Innovation. Her graduation project will span a period of four months, including a research trip to India. Fleur will collaborate with several Women on Wings clients in Rajasthan to examine the demand for and application of solar cell technology.


“The sales strategy workshop with the Women on Wings team has really helped us bring together our sales team. We feel that this intervention was very timely and the facilitation was very well done. We would like to express our thanks to the Women on Wings team for their inputs.”
