Published: Monday, July 28, 2008 The bi-annual World Solar Challenge is a prestigious race across Australia from North to South for vehicles fuelled exclusively by solar energy. The race lays the foundations for future developments in the field of renewable energy.

Kipp & Zonen sponsors the Dutch entries, three times winner Nuon Solar Team and newcomers Solar Team Twente, with CMP 6 Pyranometers, one of our most successful products. The pyranometers are mounted on support vehicles and are used to validate the predicted values of solar radiation. One pyranometer measures the radiation a few kilometres ahead of the solar car and another is directly behind it. These insights contributed to the winning race strategy of the Nuon Nuna.
