The TU/e students of today will be the engineers of tomorrow. We believe that an important step in the energy transition lies in informing and inspiring these future generations about the different ways in which they can contribute to the energy transition. Cooperation between students from different technical disciplines, researchers and professionals allows us to share knowledge and innovative ideas, and to create new opportunities to challenge the status quo.
Team Energy is a group of enthusiastic, motivated and talented students interested in the current energy transition. The energy transition is a topic with high societal relevance; some important changes need to be made in order to maintain the current standard of living. To initiate these changes is challenging: not only awareness and willingness are needed, but also new creative ideas and smart technical innovations. This led us to create the following mission:Read more
Team Hypermile is creating a race were students get the opportunity to hypermile with an electric car. Using different driving techniques a better energy efficiency and thus more range with the same charge can be achieved. Several checkpoints along the race challenges the student to think critically about the role of the electric car in the energy transition, where the student can either win or lose valuable charge on the way to the finish line.
The Energy Challenge
Team Challenge organizes a contest in which students can compete towards the best sustainable concept based on this year’s theme. Throughout the competition aspiring speakers, educational workshops and expert feedback will bring your concept to the next level. At the end of the event the best idea will be chosen by the judges and will be the winner of The Energy Challenge 2018!
