Green Team Twente is a multidisciplinary team with ambitious students from the University of Twente and Saxion Hogeschool. Until now we have designed, built and raced the most efficient hydrogen car. To test our performance we challenge ourselves against other student teams from all over the world in the Shell Eco Marathon.
Due to Covid-19, the Shell Eco Marathon was cancelled last year. Instead, last year’s team organised their own event together with the University of Delft and Hogeschool of Arnhem and Nijmegen (HAN). Next to that, the former team has been very busy with making a documentary about hydrogen implementation. The documentary: “Waterstof, Fuel of the Future” will premier the 19th of November and can be seen in Concordia from the 28th of November. The former team had an exhibition with all our cars at the MuseumFabriek in Enschede.
Since this September, Green Team Twente ‘22 has been analysing ways to optimise the car and has been coming up with new ideas to innovate. We came to a crucial decision for the upcoming year: This year we will not only build a highly efficient hydrogen car, but also a hydrogen racing car. Showing the world that hydrogen technology is ready for another challenge is what motivates our team the most. This switch will be a huge step for Green Team Twente, which will require our ambition and drive for change.
Besides building a hydrogen powered car, we strive to educate and spread awareness about hydrogen as a viable energy carrier. Therefore a new function has come to life within the communication subteam: the education function. We will raise awareness of hydrogen as a solution towards a more sustainable future on all levels of society.
