Lightyear is developing the first car powered by solar energy. The solar panel design was born out of the Solar Team Eindhoven's solar-powered cars for the World Solar Challenge. The first prototype was developed through crowdfunding: Lightyear One.

Power electronics test engineer Arpit Gupta will be talking about his experience within Lightyear and his view on the transition from fossil energy to renewable energy.
