VS-SOLAR CHALLENGE - 5.ª Grande corrida de carros movidos a energia solar

For the EUSEW 2019, Portugal’s National Energy Agency (ADENE) and the Network of Energy and Environment Agencies (RNAE) are coordinating a set of Energy Days promoted by Portuguese municipalities, municipal associations and energy agencies aiming to raise awareness on energy efficiency and renewable energy in Portugal.

VS-SOLAR CHALLENGE is a solar-powered car race, promoted by the Municipality of Sintra and VS-Solar, which takes place every year and enjoys strong adhesion on the part of the school community. More than a competition, it is a race for a better environment.
Besides the race, the event comprises several other environmental awareness activities, which aim to illustrate the potential and benefits of solar energy.
In addition to the competition, it is intended that companies present at the event exhibit products associated with renewable energies.
