Company: Power of One Solar Car Project
Marcelo da Luz believes in The Power of One. Growing up in Brazil, Marcelo was distressed at the environmental degradation surrounding him so he turned his distress into a dream – a dream of building a solar car.
After years of blood, sweat tears and great ingenuity, Marcel’s solar car was ready for the road. He became the first person in the world to drive an electric vehicle to the Arctic. It was a hair raising experience.
Marcelo is now based in Toronto, Ontario and enthrals audiences around the world with his message of determination, inspiration and deep respect for the world we live in.
