20th Anniversary World Solar Challenge Begins

38 Solar powered cars departed Darwin yesterday, bound for Adelaide, 3000kms away. This year, the solar cars are accompanied on their journey across Australia by 19 energy-efficient vehicles showcasing technology inspired by the Solar World Challenge. The event, which takes place every two years, helps push forward research into vehicle efficiency. We'll probably never see a mainstream solar car, but the technology developed here to store and release electric power in an efficient manner has wide-ranging applications in future green vehicles.
