Armenia’s first solar car could herald nation’s production of solar vehicles
/Dec 30/

YEREVAN – Volunteers and enthusiasts have created Armenia’s first solar car with the hopes that this could lay the groundwork for the production of solar electric vehicles in Armenia.
Deputy minister of energy infrastructures and natural resources Hayk Harutyunyan told Armenpress that this is a personal initiative which aims at creating interest towards solar technologies, particularly electric transport in Armenia. “We have people with two areas of interest: the first is to design and build a solar car from scratch, and the second is to convert old cars into electric vehicles. We want to show that the current cars can be replaced by electric motors, and later we hope that it will become a common practice in Armenia,” Harutyunyan said.
Harutyunyan notes that the world’s leading companies engaged in production of electric cars find their main engineers and employees from such groups. Australia has held the Solar Challenge competition—in which all universities participate by designing their own solar car—for almost 30 years. “We also want to create a similar vehicle here with the hope that we will create a certain interest among the specialists. They will work on this path with a dream that a production of solar electric cars will be set up in Armenia,” the deputy minister said.
Harutyunyan couldn’t specify a target date because all work is being done on a volunteer basis and without formal funding. “It is a completely new field, and it’s difficult to find car designing specialists in Armenia. Certain financial resources are also needed, and we will most likely apply to private companies and donor organizations for funding,” he said.
