H2 car as powerplant

On Wednesday the 22nd of April Puur Media was on the premises of the Delft University of Technology for the upcoming documentary H2. The professor had invited us to a house which is used for researching sustainability. This house is the start of the Green Village which is to be built on this location.

We  interviewed founder of future Green village and professor Ad van Wijk.

 The beginning of the Green Village is this sustainable house

Ad van Wijk shared about different energy solutions based around hydrogen cars and how they differ from cars that run on fossil fuels and how they can complement electric cars which run on batteries.

 Moreover, he envisions a future where hydrogen cars play an important role in sustainable living.  He  envisions a future where hydrogen cars play an important role in sustainable living. Hydrogen cars could provide the required electricity  to replace the power plants.

After the interview, we dropped by the Ecorunner team in the Dream Hall. Filmmaker Benny Vink briefly looked back with Jim Hoogmoed (Team Manager) and Stefan Leegwater (Chief Engineer) on last week's events. They had had a busy week measuring the the air resistance of the Ecorunner 5, as well as the unveiling of their car for sponsors and family. After testing  a few days, we found out that their vehicle has the least air resistance in the world. After getting some rest, they  are  busy preparing for the race. 

Below are some pictures.
