Fuel efficiency pushed to the limit
Shell Eco-marathon is a unique competition that challenges students around the world to design, build and drive the most energy-efficient car. With three annual events in Asia, Americas and Europe, student teams take to the track to see who goes further on the least amount of fuel.
After a year of preparation, bright young engineers have just a few days to battle it out in urban circuits, driving self-built cars for supreme energy efficiency.
Linde´s RoleThe Linde Group will demonstrate its hydrogen capabilities in London as a global partner at the Shell Eco-marathon for the seventh consecutive year.
Linde supports the event by supplying hydrogen (H2) and technical support to the teams who have decided to build fuel cell-powered vehicles.
This year’s European leg is being held 25 - 28 May at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London.
“Hydrogen technology is a game-changing opportunity for sustainable energy and mobility solutions,” said Dr Christian Bruch, member of the Executive Board of Linde AG. “From the design, construction and operation of hydrogen plants to the development of advanced distribution and compression technologies, Linde is a pioneer and one-stop shop for all hydrogen-related processes.”
Hydrogen can be produced from a variety of primary energy sources, including renewables. When used in fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), the only by-product is water. Find out more about BOC's capabilities in hydrogen energy.
Linde has more than 100 years of experience working with hydrogen, including extensive research and development in its use as a clean fuel for the past 25 years. The company is a leader in H2 refuelling technology and has so far built more than 100 H2 stations in 15 countries.
Linde and Shell have been long-standing partners in the Clean Energy Partnership initiative and the H2 MOBILITY joint venture, both designed to promote H2 infrastructure development in Germany and across Europe. Linde also provides its technology to a network of public H2 fuelling facilities in California, Japan and elsewhere across the globe.
