Durham University Electric Motorsport (DUEM)

DUEM is the UK's leading solar car team. Founded in 2002, we design, build and race solar vehicles entirely in-house.

Durham University Electric Motorsport (DUEM) design, build, and race solar cars. DUEM are currently building our most ambitious Solar Powered Car yet for entry into the World Solar Challenge in 2019 and have exciting future ambitions beyond this. In October 2017 we raced our 3rd generation solar car, DUSC, 3000 km across the Australian continent. More than 50 undergraduate and postgraduate students are involved in the team, with specialities in Vehicle Dynamics, Electronics, Aerodynamics, all working to design a green, efficient car. The team is entirely funded by sponsorship with a dedicated Business, PR & Marketing team working hard to ensure we attract the funding and reach necessary to bring the cars from our imagination to the road. In order to promote ourselves to the public and potential sponsors, we have presented at events such as the Goodwood Festival of Speed and the London Motor Show. We are delighted to be a founding member of the World Alliance for Efficient Solutions. DUEM would like to thank all of their sponsors for their continued commitment.
