The University of Vermont has a really interesting project on their Alternative Energy Racing Organization [AERO] page. Be sure to check out the “Green Innovation” page for a lot more information on the build.
Our primary focus is Project GreenSpeed, an effort to build a race car for entry in the annual International Formula-Hybrid competition sponsored by IEEE and SAE. For us, it is an opportunity to demonstrate the efficacy of non-traditional drive-systems for mobility engineering and get to drive fast at the same time.
