About the Fundraiser

About the Team
DJS HELIOS - Mumbai's first & only Solar-Electric Car Team


'Cars release approximately 333 million tons of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere annually, which is 20 percent of the world's total'

- It is facts like these that persuade us to work towards our goal - cleaner, greener world.

- The team consists of 30 members from different engineering backgrounds - Mechanical, Electronics & Production. We design, analyze and manufacture our very own solar car to participate in two competitions ESVC & IASC.

-We started out as a final year project in 2015 and two years later, with two models built successfully and loads of experience gained, we intend to set up a strong base by building a car capable of running purely on solar energy. 

•Competition Results ESVC'17 -

-22nd overall Rank out of 137 teams 

-Won the Go Green Award  

-Runners up for People's Choice Award  



•ESVC'18 Pre-Virtuals Round  

-All India Rank - 6th out of 81 teams  

We have already made a good start this season, help us maintain it and set new benchmarks.

• The plaudits we received in our debut year itself, coupled with our aim of exploring an alternative source of energy ensured that we were invited to be a part of Transform Maharashtra 2025 where Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Shree Devendra Fadnavis visited our pit. 



To create awareness about the rising pollution levels and to ultimately participate in World Solar Challenge'19.

-Electric Solar Vehicle Championship (ESVC) is Asia’s largest solar event which started in 2013. The basic objective is to raise awareness among future generation of engineers about renewable energy resources and promote development in this sector.

-It is to be held in March 2018 in Delhi NCR.


-The purpose of the Indo Asian Solar Challenge is to stimulate research into, and development of, sustainable transport, meaning that the Indo Asian Solar Challenge is primarily a design competition. The regulatory philosophy is to provide the parameters upon which to base the design, rather than specify exactly how it is to be achieved.

-Science and technology evolve and to encourage the most innovative ideas, so too do the event requirements. Participation in the 2018 Indo Asian Solar Challenge calls for the design and construction of a Solar Electric Vehicle within the given design parameters, and driving the Solar Electric Vehicle across the continent of Asia in accordance with these regulations.

-It will be held in Bhopal in April 2018.



 Why Crowdfunding?

• With improvement in every department every year and DJS Helios being a student organization, we require a significant amount of support - monetary as well as in the form of in-kind aids to pursue our goals.

• In the foreseeable future clean energy will be a necessity rather than the luxury it is now. By producing a car using energy that is clean in every sense of the word, it is this eventuality team DJS Helios is preparing for.

How will the raised funds be used?

With a substantial amount of state of the art electronics incorporated into the car, the majority of raised funds will be used to fabricate top quality batteries, import high efficiency hub motors and  transport the car across the country.



• We intend to do our bit for this planet and would like to take this opportunity to invite you to do the same.

We urge you to donate as much as you can and share this campaign all over your social media.
