Tanya Spee, Partnerships & PR Manager at Vattenfall Solar Team, on Solar-Powered Vehicles & Bringing About a Greener Future

This podcast is part of the IT Sustainability & Workplace Experience Series from Citrix.

We spoke to Tanya Spee about the Vattenfall Solar Team’s inspiring project to design, build and race a solar-powered car as a means of promoting more sustainable ways of thinking in this exclusive episode of The CEO.digital Show EXTRA.

Sustainability is the word on everyone’s lips this year as extreme weather events have brought the realities of climate change to the very forefront of our minds. Potential solutions to limiting the worst effects of climate change abound, but for one team in the Netherlands, there’s no better area to focus on than harnessing the power of solar energy. Enter the Vattenfall Solar Team, a non-profit prestige project from Delft University of Technology that’s aiming to win the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge with its purpose-built solar-powered vehicle.

To find out more, we spoke to Tanya Spee about the upcoming race in Morocco, what the team hopes to achieve by building a successful solar-powered vehicle, and why it’s vital that we inspire more people to embrace sustainability.
