Rooting for the Agoria Solar Team
The Agoria Solar Team from KU Leuven is constantly pushing the boundaries of solar power. From Friday 9 to Friday 16 September, the team will be competing in the Sasol Solar Challenge: a race for solar cars in South Africa. Student teams are challenged to cover as much distance as possible between Johannesburg and Cape Town.
It is the first time that the Belgian Solar Team takes part in this unique challenge, and it is the longest competition in which the team has participated so far. Earlier this year, the Agoria Solar Team broke the world record (1,051 kilometers!) for 'most kilometers driven with a solar car in 12 hours'.
As an insurance company for students abroad, Expat & Co is very happy to support such an exciting and sustainable project!
