Solar car shines Africa’s light in Australia



The North-West University’s (NWU) solar car, Naledi, crossed the finish line of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge from Darwin to Adelaide, Australia. It was the only solar car from Africa to compete in the prestigious race.

Naledi, which boasts a unique design and advanced innovations, once again proved why nothing complements ingenuity more than dedication. The team from the NWU’s Faculty of Engineering completed 1600 km despite overcast conditions and uncommon rainstorms. The university has competed in solar car challenges since 2012, in the pursuit of energy-efficient transport technology. This flagship inter-disciplinary project of the Faculty of Engineering focuses on research and the application of new technologies in renewable energy, and aims to inspire communities and prospective students to engage with renewable technology.
