About the event

Imperial Society of Innovative Engineers (ISIE) has been organizing Electric Solar Vehicle Challenge (ESVC) for the last five years. The objective of this event is to promote Green Energy Technology and Eco Friendly Technology.

It is worthwhile to mention that the Government of India has started the National Electric Solar Mobility Mission Plan 2020. The plan has an ambitious target to achieve 6 – 7 million sales of hybrid and electric vehicles year on year from 2020 onwards.

Seeing the pressing need of reducing our dependence on fossil fuel based energy sources and increasing the use of renewable energy sources (like solar) these kind of competitions are truly in sync with the need of the hour.

Our performance in the last event

ABESEC team won 6th prize along with 3 prizes in technical category (best design, best business plan and best innovation) and appreciation and green mobility award. The team was awarded a cash prize of Rs. 30,000.

Our performance in event of this year

ABESEC has been participating in the event for the last three years. This year the rank of team ABESEC jumped from sixth to second (at the national level) and first rank in north India.

The team also won the prestigious Solar Endurance Award. In order to win the Solar Endurance Award the vehicle designed and manufactured by the team had to cover a specified distance by running only on solar panels. The vehicle successfully accomplished the feat running only on solar panels and without using battery. Ours is the only team from North India that has one any prize in any of the technical category events.

The joy in the above achievement is compounded by the fact that ABESEC team has manufactured their own flexible solar panels. The process to manufacture the panels is totally indigenous and has been developed in the labs of the institute.

The technology to manufacture flexible solar panels is not available in the country. The requirement for flexible panels is met through imports from China. Successful manufacture of flexible panels and its flawless performance in the event has proven that Make in India campaign has inspired many to act.
