February 3, 2021. Scheduled for May 19 and 20 at the Fay-de-Bretagne circuit, France, the first edition of the EcoGreen Gas challenge brings together LaJol Always, an association of the Lycée de la Joliverie, with many actors from the gas industry.
Well known for its multiple consumption records with the Microjoule, a prototype of NGV designed by students, the Lycée de la Joliverie launches an unprecedented competition. Organized in collaboration with many players in the sector, including GRTgaz, GRDF, SYDELA, SYDEV, Lhyfe and the Pays de la Loire region, the first edition will take place on May 19 and 20 at the Fay-de-Bretagne circuit, in Loire-Atlantique.
Inspired by the Shell Eco Marathon, a world renowned event, the EcoGreen Gas Challenge will bring together around 20 teams from 4 countries.
Made up of students, each team will be responsible for designing, building and driving vehicles capable of covering a distance of 20 km at an average speed of 25 km/h while consuming the minimum of fuel.
Eager to promote locally produced green fuels, the EcoGreen Gas Challenge will allow teams to choose between two types of fuels: bioNGV and renewable hydrogen.
Beyond the competition component, the various event partners will offer a forum. This will help boost local initiatives underway to develop green gas.
