The 10th edition of The Solar Future NL will take place in:

DeFabrique, Utrecht

The factories of the twentieth century are like the cathedrals of the Middle Ages; historic landmarks and inspiration to many. The industrial revolution brought about progress at a pace unknown to mankind. This drive to innovate and the industrial heritage linked to it push us to reach equal impact up until this day.

DeFabrique organizes and facilitates events in a rustic factory environment, which has been repurposed as event venue with state-of-the-art facilities. 

This is DeFabrique. Exciting, Memorable, Unique
