The first world tour aboard an electric car powered by solar energy; 30000 km in over 6 months across 15 countries.
The purpose of our project is to demonstrate to the great public the extraordinary potential of electric cars which, when paired with a solar based system, acquire an additional value compared to traditional fossil fuel based mobility.
We want to analyse the current model of mobility and highlight the existence of alternative technology which is capable of substituting it, creating a cheaper and more sustainable model.
Electric cars and photovoltaic energy are two types of technology which are well consolidated and, when combined, work towards reducing our future problems with mobility.
The obstacle that is still blocking a revolution in private transport is above all caused by the absence of adequate economic policies, but also the public opinion that, not being sufficiently sensitised to the topic, remains rooted in some prejudices that, through our project, we will try to debunk.
We would like to be clear that the current model of mobility is unsustainable and that a change is indispensable. The technology described above is sophisticated and is ready to be used straight away.
The idea is to create a mobile solar charging station through an equipped commercial vehicle that, when necessary, can expose its solar panels to allow the car to charge. The commercial vehicle will run close to the EV in order to provide energy when needed.
The mobile solar charging system will be developed using the best devices on the market and designed in accordance with the best practices, in order to reach the best efficiency.
In this way we will be able to simulate the fact that if there were a reasonable amount of public charging points, it would be possible to go anywhere using an electric vehicle currently on the market. It is therefore our intention to demonstrate that photovoltaic technology is perfectly capable of charging an electric vehicle, thus drastically reducing the emissions of traditional mobility.
We would like to demonstrate that all of us, from the point of view of mobility, could be completely independent of fossil fuels. Ever family could have a solar charging system installed at home, enabling us to recharge our vehicles exclusively with solar energy at zero cost!
A great journey on the sign of electric mobility and renewable energy
The project will pass through over 15 countries, giving us the possibility to show our initiative and technology. The numerous stops will allow us to interact and deepen knowledge of different local cultures.
During the tour we expect to stop in the main cities to present our project and our sponsors, give people a chance to try the car and anything else agreed on with our partners
The crew will be made up of at least three people. These people are necessary for the correct operation of the charging station as well as driving the car. Furthermore, we expect there to be a press agent on who will write articles, take pictures, make videos, and anything else necessary for spreading news in relation to the project.
