History #energyboatchallenge

The Monaco Energy Boat Challenge is an international challenge open to the public, which welcomes students and professionals from all over the world to race in three different classes: Energy, Solar and Open Sea Class. Join us for an epic week of racing, innovation and networking. Our event aims to create a platform where open source information sharing is the focus, creating a bridge between the engineers of tomorrow and the industry leaders of today. The time for talk is over, it's time for action. You'll see how different teams are implementing a variety of renewable energy and propulsion systems to create ships with long-range autonomy and blazing top speeds.
