energy CLASS #energyboatchallenge

In the Energy Class, introduced in 2018 by the YCM — which supplies each team with the same hull design — the challenge for students, working with industry partners, is to design the most powerful and durable propulsion system using a clean energy source of their choice, from a given quantity of energy. A laboratory of innovation, many and varied avenues have been pursued since its launch, from fuel cells to recovering heat to improve efficiency, and artificial intelligence.

In 2020, online presentations revealed that a lot of thought had also gone into cockpit design.
