Shell is back with Make the Future Live India which is scheduled to be held at the Shell Technology Centre, Bengaluru (STCB) from 19 - 22 November, 2019. The STCB is the technology and engineering heartland for Shell, offering high-tech innovation and Research and Development for multidisciplinary collaboration. Shell believes that this is an ideal location to host bright young minds and help them put their innovative fuel-efficient vehicles to the test. Students, business, academia and government will explore cleaner energy solutions for a lower-carbon future.

Inaugurated in 1939, Shell Eco-marathon is the world’s longest-running student competition wherein engineering students are challenged to design, build and test fuel-efficient cars. Hosted in several countries around the globe, Make the Future Live, featuring Shell Eco-marathon aims to provide an opportunity for multiple stakeholders including students, entrepreneurs, businesses, governments and the public, to experience, test and contribute to bright energy ideas. The India edition will showcase innovation and foster dialogue on clean energy solutions for powering progress in mobility, while deliberating on technologies, challenges and opportunities as well as partnerships for success.

This is also an opportunity for student teams to test and fine tune their self-designed and built energy efficient vehicles for the regional Shell Eco-marathon Asia competition in 2020. For new participants, this presents a great platform to showcase skill, be part of a world-class experience and test drive vehicles with fellow peers. Student teams that take to the track will be evaluated on the criteria of who covers the greatest distance using the least amount of energy.

Speaking on the occasion, Nitin Prasad, Chairman, Shell Companies in India said, “We recognise that some of the brightest ideas come from young innovative minds who are already immersing themselves in tackling complex energy challenges. The ingenuity demonstrated by young students is not only commendable, but truly inspirational. A striking example of perseverance, talent and hard work is Team Averera from IIT-BHU that not only emerged victorious at Make the Future India last year, but also made the country proud by standing second at the Asia chapter of the festival this year. With the newest edition of Make the Future Live India, we hope to continue to elevate our legacy of nurturing our people, partnerships and innovations for a better tomorrow. I welcome all to come join us in this Endeavour with encouragement, participation and support.”
