Eco-Runner Team Delft is a multidisciplinairy student team from the Delft University of Technology. The team, consisting of 23 students, dedicates itself for a full year to design, build, test and race the world’s most efficient, hydrogen powered city car. Our ultimate goal is to inspire and activate the public to play a bigger part in the energy transition and we promote hydrogen along the way. Our message is twofold;
We plead for making transport sector more efficient. Mobility produces 25% of the total, global greenhouse gas emmision. This number can only go down if we start using less fuel, for example by making our transport smaller and lighter.
We also think that hydrogen will play a key-role in the future. Multiple alternative fuels are needed to get rid of fossil fuels and Eco-Runner Team Delft believes that hydrogen is the missing piece of this complicated puzzle.
Eco-Runner Team Delft is a D:DREAM team, meaning that it is a non-profit organization fully focussed on innovation and technology. The team consists of new students every year, offering the development that this engineering project has to offer to as many students as possible.
We create our cars to prove our message. The car is a physical representation of how efficient mobility can be and how safe, cheap and efficient it is to use hydrogen as fuel. The proof? Driving approximately 1200 km on just €3,50 worth of fuel, without emitting any greenhouse gasses!
At the end of the year Eco-Runner races their car against hundreds of other teams in a global competition. The winner can crown themselves the world’s most efficient, hydrogen powered city car!
