Ravi Nishant and Shunhangi Gupta, students from IIT Guwahati have made it to the top 3 teams at the International Green Champ competition which is an annual event held by Schneider Electric, USA. The two received the 'Green Champ Award' in which they solved 50 questions in just 114 seconds.
The two will now present a case study later this year in September in Paris. The duo aspire to gain support for their idea of using an alternative source of energy which is clean and green for running the railways. They hope to reduce dependence of energy on fossil fuels which are detrimental to the environment.
Dean of Students' Affairs of the institute, Chandan Mahanta has stated that this would encourage other students to also pursue innovative ideas they come up with.
