It’s important to create renewable energy sources and less energy from fossil.
But now automotive car do research on solar car. The source energy is from the sun. Solar car is electric vehicles powered by solar energy obtained from solar panel on the surface. PV (photovoltaic) cells receive and convert the sun’s energy directly into electrical energy. But it’s more do research about long-life mobility of car. It’s a real problem when solar car drives in the evening it’s difficult to get the energy supply. Very imposibble solar car will produce in massive and selling to consumer today. It takes several times until finding a solution on energy supply.
