Team UP Shell Eco marathon 2012

We are Team UP, a group of Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Electronics & Electrical Engineering (EEE) students from the University of the Philippines, Diliman, competing in the Shell Eco-Marathon – Asia 2012.

The Shell Eco-Marathon is an annual competition in which participants from universities and schools all over the world build special vehicles designed to achieve the highest possible energy efficiency.

Last year, Team U.P. won the “Diesel Fuel Award” with our entry Kidlat, which achieved a record fuel consumption of 60 km/L, and placed 5th overall among 19 participants in its category.

This year, we will be racing a BATTERY-POWERED ELECTRIC CAR on July 5-7 in Sepang, Malaysia.

What is Global Warming?

What is Global Warming?

Global Warming is a gradual warming of the Earth's atmosphere reportedly caused by the burning of fossil fuels and industrial pollutants due to greenhouse gases, leading to climate change and rising sea levels. Renewable energy, energy efficient buildings and sustainable travel are examples of ways to help avert the greenhouse effect.

What is Climate Change?

Climate change is a change in the statistical distribution of weather over periods of time that range from decades to millions of years. It can be a change in the average weather or a change in the distribution of weather events around an average (for example, greater or fewer extreme weather events). Climate change may be limited to a specific region, or may occur across the whole Earth.
