IUT Energy Day Shell Eco Marathon

We are students in engineering and management and we join the Energy Days with this event, which aims to promote energy efficiency with new technologies and innovation.

Our focus will be on an existing project: a ‘prototype’ which has been created years ago by students in order to participate in the Shell Eco Marathon. The objective of this race is to cross a maximum of kilometres with a single litre of gasoline using an ‘ultra-efficient-energy vehicle’. Each year, students improve it through design and innovation, testing and driving, finding partners and raising awareness on eco-efficiency.

Throughout the year, students worked on an on-going promotion of the project through academic events and press releases in local media.  This event consists of a lunch seminar with student presentations, speeches by engineering teachers and an open door exhibition, with an audience consisting of professionals and students.
