How to combine Solar PV, speed, distance, education and competition with Battery Storage if you want to race on the water and have very limited space for batteries. And... schools and students do not have all that much money. The answer to that questions was an invention we did: Young Solar Boat. A wooden 'do it yourself kit', complete with battery, solar panels and inverter. The result: great competition, more than 40 boats reaching speeds of over 20 kilometers per hour, are already built and a new generation made enthusiastic for Renewable Energy!
