Three universities and technology institutes from Bengaluru have cleared Phase I registrations and are gearing up for Phase II registrations to compete in the seventh year of Shell Eco-marathon Asia (SEM Asia).

Shell Eco-marathon challenges high school and university students from around Asia to design, build and test energy efficient vehicles.

Student teams are encouraged to stretch the boundaries of fuel efficiency in a real world urban environment, and winners are determined by the mileage achieved on a litre of fuel, rather than speed.

From a number of participants at SEM Asia, the winning team will cover the maximum distance using the least amount of energy.

Dr Yasmine Hilton, Chairman, Shell Companies in India, said, “I am delighted to see that nearly 60 per cent of students who participated last year are fielding entries again this year. This is testimony to the experience and learning and development opportunity that Shell Eco-marathon provides to young scientific minds. I wish them the very best of luck in their endeavour.”
