World Solar Challenge: the favourites

I will need to re-do this at some point, but the poster below shows the favourites (based purely on 2015 performance) for the 2017 World Solar Challenge (click to zoom). There is a very interesting mix of designs this year! For more details, see my annotated list of teams.

    • Well, Twente stuck with Silicon cells (unlike Nuon and Punch), which means a larger area all up. But if you look at my dimensions post, you can see that they opted for “long and narrow” (like Stanford). More of an evolutionary than a revolutionary design, I guess. We’ll see how it works out in the race!
