The five-day showcase of bright ideas and innovation saw 47 student teams from nine countries put their self-built energy-efficient cars to the test at the Pertamina Mandalika International Street Circuit in Lombok, West Nusa Tenggara. The competition was held in Indonesia for the first time, with student teams competing in two main categories: Prototype and UrbanConcept vehicles and three main energy sources per category.

A total of 23 awards were given for both on-track and off-track categories. Off-track prizes are given for the recognition of skills outside of the teams’ track performance.

The best mileage for Shell Eco-marathon Indonesia 2022 was achieved by Nakoela Team from Universitas Indonesia in the prototype, internal combustion engine (ICE) category at 905.2 kilometres per litre (km/l), which is equivalent to driving from Lombok to Semarang in Central Java.

Other winners include SEMAR PROTO UGM from Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) with a result of 586.9 kilometres per kilowatts hour (km/kWh) in the battery-electric category, and Apatte Elang Perkasa Team 2 from Universitas Brawijaya with a result of 361.2 kilometres per cubic metres (km/m3) in the hydrogen fuel cell category.

For UrbanConcept, the best mileage record for the ICE category was 544.2 km/l by Garuda UNY Eco Team from Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta in Indonesia.

Other winners include Arjuna team from Universitas Indonesia, with a result of 194.2 km/kWh in the battery-electric category, and TP ECO FLASH from Temasek Polytechnic in Singapore with a result of 137 km/m3 in the hydrogen fuel cell category.

"It’s been a fun, challenging and special experience to win the competition. We worked five hours every day, six days a week, for the whole year to prepare for this event,” said Adzim Mardiansjah, general manager of SEMAR PROTO UGM team, winner of the Prototype battery-electric category and first runner-up in the Urban Concept ICE category. “We’re happy that it paid off and we hope to achieve even greater things next year.”

The off-track competition crowned winners in five categories including travel safety, vehicle design for both Prototype and UrbanConcept, technical innovation, safety and Spirit of Shell Eco-marathon award. The winners include teams from Singapore, the Philippines, India and Indonesia.

Shell Eco-marathon Indonesia 2022 not only provides an opportunity for young people to showcase their talents in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), but also challenges them, especially at the student level around the world, to design and develop ultra-energy-efficient vehicles to realize the mobility of a smarter and more sustainable future.

Norman Koch, global general manager of Shell Eco-marathon said, “These students have worked tirelessly to develop sustainable and cleaner energy solutions to tackle the energy challenges we face today. Through Shell Eco-marathon, it was great to see students pushing their design, technology and engineering skills to the limit, both on and off the track, to cross the finish line.”

Notes to editors

About Shell Eco-marathon:

Shell Eco-Marathon has been challenging the student teams in Asia since 2010. The programme provides a platform for high school and university teams to explore every aspect of design and technology, using their STEM skills to build their own ultra-energy-efficient cars, and then take them out on the track in competition.

The concept of Shell Eco-marathon can be traced back to 1939 when Bob Greenshields, Shell’s Research Director, made a friendly wager with his colleagues at Shell Oil Company in the USA on who could travel farthest using the same amount of fuel.

The track competition has come a long way since then and today’s teams can choose from energy categories such as ICE, battery electric, or hydrogen fuel cell. In line with innovative, STEM-based thinking, they also build their lightweight and energy-efficient vehicles using different materials that range from advanced carbon fibre to bamboo.

Neither Shell plc nor any of its subsidiaries undertake any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement as a result of new information, future events or other information. In light of these risks, results could differ materially from those stated, implied or inferred from the forward-looking statements contained in this announcement.

Shell’s net carbon footprint

Also, in this announcement we may refer to Shell’s “Net Carbon Footprint” or “Net Carbon Intensity”, which include Shell’s carbon emissions from the production of our energy products, our suppliers’ carbon emissions in supplying energy for that production and our customers’ carbon emissions associated with their use of the energy products we sell. Shell only controls its own emissions. The use of the term Shell’s “Net Carbon Footprint” or “Net Carbon Intensity” are for convenience only and not intended to suggest these emissions are those of Shell plc or its subsidiaries.

Shell’s net-Zero Emissions Target

Shell’s operating plan, outlook and budgets are forecasted for a ten-year period and are updated every year.  They reflect the current economic environment and what we can reasonably expect to see over the next ten years. Accordingly, they reflect our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Net Carbon Footprint (NCF) targets over the next ten years.  However, Shell’s operating plans cannot reflect our 2050 net-zero emissions target and 2035 NCF target, as these targets are currently outside our planning period. In the future, as society moves towards net-zero emissions, we expect Shell’s operating plans to reflect this movement. However, if society is not net zero in 2050, as of today, there would be significant risk that Shell may not meet this target.

Forward Looking Non-GAAP measures

This announcement may contain certain forward-looking non-GAAP measures such as cash capital expenditure and divestments. We are unable to provide a reconciliation of these forward-looking Non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures because certain information needed to reconcile those Non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP financial measures is dependent on future events some of which are outside the control of Shell, such as oil and gas prices, interest rates and exchange rates. Moreover, estimating such GAAP measures with the required precision necessary to provide a meaningful reconciliation is extremely difficult and could not be accomplished without unreasonable effort. Non-GAAP measures in respect of future periods which cannot be reconciled to the most comparable GAAP financial measure are calculated in a manner which is consistent with the accounting policies applied in Shell plc’s consolidated financial statements.
