India at world solar challenge

The World Solar Challenge is a biennial event based on a competitive field of solar cars crossing the Australian continent powered by nothing but the sun.

As the fossil fuels are exhausted, the fuel cost is increasing drastically. Thus, the need to use alternative sources of energy is of utmost importance. For a country like India, the need for such initiatives is imperative due to its economic situation. The present rate of growth can be sustained only with innovations in the field of alternative energy.

India is being represented by "Team Solaris" with car number-95 in Challenge class. Its great to know that a team from Delhi College of engineering is in the race with teams from all over the world.

Lets wish team solaris all the best for the panasonic world solar challenge which is to take place in the month of October.
