Solar Challenge India
Anyone from a technical educational institution or otherwise can take the lead, form a team, design and make an electric car powered by solar panels to make an expedition of 3000+ kms from Kerala to Kashmir.
Or make one, like F1 car, which can be tested in a racing track to find the speed limits.
SuryaKranti will enable Indian teams to qualify and compete in different solar car races, like World Solar Challenge, Australia.
WHAT’S WORLD SOLAR CHALLENGE
Read All About It :
October 2019 saw the 15th edition of the toughest solar race event in the world from Darwin to Adelaide, Australia. The distance is more than 3000 kms. Hand made concept vehicle with design innovations and implementation of technological advancements as per the rules and regulations are testing the limits of human endeavour.
Let's organise a similar event in India to enable teams to take up such international challenges. This will support the teams to build industry collaborations with component suppliers, R&D inputs from organisations like ISRO, DRDO, CSIR for application of technology for societal problem solving and incubation of startup organisations in the electric mobility and allied areas.
LEARNING FROM THE EVENT
The organisational complications will have to be learned from World Solar Challenge to help to hold a similar event in India.
As an observer / volunteer who travelled with the teams, live articles, photos and videos will be updated in the blog.
You are invited to visit the blog and social media coverage to get yourself updated on the latest news about SuryaKranti Solar Challenge India.
