Racing to Innovate

How the next-generation is pushing the boundaries of solar

EKO Instruments is sponsoring the University of Michigan Solar Car Team (UM Solar Car) and five other teams from around the world at the next 'Bridgestone World Solar Challenge', as part of the 'EKO | emPower' programme; providing the latest environmental instruments, technical partnerships, and support to young scientists, designers, students, and engineers around the world. Helping them to innovate, achieve their goals, advance their ideas, and build a better, more sustainable, future.

Since their founding in 1989, UM Solar Car has built 15 solar race cars and are currently working on production of their latest model for the American Solar Challenge. In addition to winning this event nine times, the team has also secured 7 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge podium finishes and won the 2015 Abu Dhabi Solar Challenge to become America's undisputed #1 solar car team.

The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge announced on the 12th of February that this year's event had been cancelled, due to ongoing uncertainty caused by the pandemic. The next race will occur in two years. EKO Instruments will continue to support the Michigan University Solar Car Team through the emPower programme as they adapt to new challenges and prepare for 2023.
