DUEM Invited to the United Nations Climate Conference COP22

DUEM are attending the UN's Climate Conference; COP22

Durham University Electric Motorsport are proud to announce that they have been invited to exhibit at the United Nations Climate Conference, COP22, in Marrakesh, Morocco from 14-15th November. As the UK’s longest running solar car team, DUEM’s heritage of world-leading solar car design, manufacture and racing has been recognised in an unparalleled way and we are delighted to be attending this conference.

This truly is the international stage and will see the signing of landmark agreements following on last year’s Paris Conference; COP21. We are proud to be showcasing our team in front of world leaders, press and thousands of delegates. Not only that, but the event itself is followed by billions – our reach continues to climb ever higher. We are thrilled to showcase the support of our sponsors at the event & bring a new element to our partnerships. We also look forward to signing new agreements at the show & will keep you informed.

We will be representing British engineering and innovation in sustainability on the global stage. Our mission has always been to showcase the very latest technology, to educate the public about climate change and to inspire the next generation; we are taking this to the next level through our exhibition at COP22.

This is going to change everything, all over again.

Science Museum 2016

DUEM's Solar Car at the Science MuseumOur Solar Car at the Science Museum

We know our solar car has the power to inspire millions around the world. Having taken the car to numerous school around the UK in recent years, we wanted a central location to attract the public and, particularly, schoolkids from around the world to showcase our technology. We had a fantastic event, exhibiting at the Museum’s Antenna Live event from 26-28th July. Many thousands came to see us and it was the perfect event to inspire young and old about our project and let them know about our exciting future ambitions. Oh & with it being such a tourist hotspot, it tested our language skills very well indeed!

Goodwood Festival of Speed 2016

DUEM have been fortunate enough to attend many high-profile events over the years. The goal is always, for us, to showcase the car to as many people as possible; to inspire them to think differently about what the automotive world could look like in the not too distant future.

We were honoured that in 2016, we were able to attend the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This is the world’s biggest motor show. Our stand pulled in the crowds and showed our take on the future; who knows, it could be a solar hill climb race soon! With over 68m (yes million!) people hearing about us, it provided us with a huge stage to showcase our technology and talk about our exciting future plans. You can see some of the pictures from the 5 days here.

Bruntingthorpe Launch Event

Bruntinhthorpe Launch Event

Bruntingthorpe Launch Event

DUEM launched our brand new solar car to  guests & media at Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground on Sunday 9th August 2015. It was a truly spectacular event with the car being launched in Hangar 42; a 36,000 sq.ft hangar, followed by testing on the race track. Bruntingthorpe has the longest privately run runway in the whole of the UK & we used it to great advantage. This was especially the case as our great sponsor, Jaguar Land Rover, provided 2 beautiful F-Types to accompany the car & provided attendees with an opportunity to speed around the circuit. Take a look at our Gallery page for more photos & keep your eyes posted for updates about our solar car’s progress to Australia!
