Team Players


Shell Eco-marathon Europe

Shell Eco-marathon is a competition that challenges student teams around the world to design, build, test and drive ultra-energy-efficient vehicles. The goal is to run on a given track for a given amount of laps and during a given amount of time while minimizing the whole energy consumption of the vehicle.

We don’t know if it has something to do with the unbeatable racing spirit of our teams (or maybe with their acceleration skills) 😉, but this past Powered by Umicore year went by sooooo fast! A big thanks to all of you for following the adventures of Umicore Electra ULg, TH Köln - eMotorsports Cologne, Formula Electric Belgium, S&T Formula Electric Racing and UAntwerp Solar Boat Team!

It may look like just a plain yellow box, but this box contains the heart of Umicore Electra ULg's car: the battery. The battery stores chemical energy and converts it into the needed electricity to keep the car going. In combination with the motor controller, they make the perfect team to ensure that no energy is wasted.⚡
