Rebelle Rally is bringing back Renewable Innovations (RI) as a partner in their sustainability efforts for the competitive off-road rally that covers over 2,500 kilometers of remote terrain over eight days. RI offers services for the electrified identification of electric vehicles (EV) and supplies three base camps on the route with solar energy.
Electric vehicles are fueled by Renewable Innovations through their Mobile Energy Command (H2EV). The 53-foot mobile power plant has high-density solar panels and smartflowers on each side that follow the sun on its way across the sky to provide 50 kW of peak power and 250 kWh of battery storage. The H2EV is completely self-sufficient and can provide 500 kW direct current fast charging, 240 kW H2-FC electricity, 700 kWh battery capacity, 500 kW alternating current and over 15,000 kWh electricity per hydrogen supply.
“This is a proving ground,” says Emily Miller, founder of Rebelle Rally. “It is important for electric vehicles and all manufacturers who want to test their vehicles in the melting pot of the competition.”
The vehicles competing in the Rebelle Rally are not modified racing cars, but standard four-wheel and four-wheel vehicles. The electrified designation was introduced at the Rebelle Rallye 2020 as a proof of concept with two first mentions. The aim of the rally and founder was to offer a real test for electrified vehicles.
