Jan Pieter Versluijs wants to increase the number of solar panels within the Netherlands! At first, it was only him and a camera stuck with duct tape. Meanwhile Jan Pieter Versluijs and his company Solar Monkey have developed a much more efficient method for designing solar panel systems. 

About the Event

Solar Monkey


The sun is perhaps one of the most consistent and environmentally-friendly sources of energy we have – and with non-renewable energy resources set to decline eventually, it is now the time to embrace technology and make the most out of solar power.


In 2014, founders Mels and Jan Pieter saw a rapidly growing, yet inefficient solar energy market. They saw a big opportunity: enable installers to grow more quickly by simplifying their processes. This relentless focus made Solar Monkey the leader in solar panel software. 


Solar Monkey offers software to installers of solar panels that allows them to design a solar PV system and exactly calculate the energy output. 


With another round of investment and some major scaling up, Jan Pieter Versluijs is an inspiring founder with very valuable insights.
