Two-day workshop on solar car design and development

Bangalore, Nov 23

Jain University organised a two-day skill development program on ‘Solar Car Design and Development.

The focus of the workshop was on the topics related to a pollution-free environment, transportation system and designing of solar cars, university officials said. The social and economic well-being of humans heavily depends upon various means of transportations, however, currently, the majority of citizens use a private automobile as their main mode of transportation.

The workshop promoted the idea of designing modes of transportation for sustainable prosperity in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution, minimizing land use and improving the utilization of renewable energy sources.

Unfortunately, our dependence on the private automobiles is no longer socially, economically or environmentally sustainable. As a result of this the climatic conditions are deteriorating and therefore, climate change is posing a serious threat to our economy, livelihoods, ecosystems and health, said professor Ram Prasad, Head of Department - Mechanical Engineering, Jain University- School of Engineering and Technology.
