The 2015 World Solar Challenge will be held from 18-25 October, with 47 teams from 25 countries participating in the 3000 kilometre journey from Darwin to Adelaide in Australia in electric and solar powered cars. The competition aims to showcase the capabilities of eco-friendly vehicles, and is based on the notion that a 1000W electric car could complete the journey in 50 hours, while solar cars are allowed a nominal 5kW hours of stored energy, which is 10% of that theoretical figure. All other energy must come from the sun or be recovered from the kinetic energy of the vehicle.
