Challenge EcoGreen Energy
May 15 & 16 2024
We are delighted to announce the dates of the EcoGreen Energy Challenge 2024! Mark your calendars and get ready for an exciting experience on May 15 & 16, 2024 on the Fay de Bretagne circuit in Loire Atlantique.
A CHALLENGE INVOLVES IN ENERGY TRANSFER
With several objectives:
BUILD, for this competition and in an educational setting, a 3- or 4-wheeled vehicle to cover a distance of about 20 km, at an average speed of at least 25 km/h on a car circuit, with the lowest possible energy consumption and in complete safety.
PROMOTE, as a priority, the strong potential of gaseous biofuels and electric energy in the fight against climate change (new 2023). The bioGNV produced in a methanation unit will be used to power internal combustion engines. Renewable hydrogen and low carbon so-called « green hydrogen » produced by wind turbines in Vendée, will be able to power fuel cells or internal combustion engines.
TRAIN a generation of technicians and engineers to master and develop these energies and their associated technologies.
ENCOURAGE meetings between stakeholders in the various sectors, the public and institutional decision-makers.
A SINGLE COMPETITION
The challenge Ecogreen Energy is the support for educational projects that give an active role to French and European students in the educational process. Their creativity in this challenge of decarbonizing transport is at the heart of their action.
Students will have to design and build vehicles with efficient engines.
This challenge will be open to two categories of vehicles, the PROTOTYPES and the URBAN CONCEPT.
SEE YOU ON 15 AND 16 MAY 2024 ON THE LOIRE-ATLANTIQUE CIRCUIT LOCATED IN FAY DE BRETAGNE, LOIRE-ATLANTIQUE, FRANCE!
