About Greenpower

Greenpower Education Trust is a UK based charity which gets young people enthusiastic about science and engineering by challenging them to design, build and race an electric car.

We supply age appropriate Kit Cars, which can be built in school, college or elsewhere and raced at motorsport venues at Greenpower organised events. Alternatively, older participants can design and build their own car to our regulations. The Greenpower challenge uses the excitement of motorsport to inspire young people to excel in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

  • We work with over 700 teams throughout the UK and hold 35+ regional events and an International Final every year.
  • More than 10,000 students take part each year, from primary school age through to university.

A growing number of international teams participate in our events and the USA, China, India, Singapore, Malaysia and Poland run programmes under the Greenpower license.

Greenpower is helping to address the engineering skills gap. The Royal Academy of Engineering estimates that the UK needs 104,000 STEM graduates per year, and 56,000 technicians, between now and 2020.
