Scientists and students at the École de technologie supérieure in Montreal have been working on the research and development of solar vehicles. To date, this has resulted in nine vehicle prototypes powered exclusively by solar energy and named “Eclipse”.
Once every year, international teams of students compete to become world champion in the development and realization of so-called “headwind vehicles”. At the 2016 Aeolus Race, held in the coastal Dutch town of Den Helder, the Canadian “Chinook ETS” team from the École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS) (Montreal University of Technology), supported by SAERTEX USA, was one of the participants.
