BIG THINGS have small beginnings. This was how the Shell Eco-marathon (SEM) started, to later become the global phenomenon it is today. This worldwide championship where students build energy-efficient cars and pit them against each other started 81 years ago. In 1939, when fossil fuel exploration was starting to become an important commodity and global geopolitical asset, two US researchers competed against each other in a bid to use the least fuel in their cars. The competition was measured by the longest distance traveled using one gallon. 

The competition which was originally for the entertainment of the scientists during busy work then became a kind of annual tradition and more serious. Every year, the efficiency of fuel use also increases. In 1985, this competition was launched in France with the format it takes today. The competition regions were expanded to include America (2007) and Asia (2010). Since 2016, the winning teams of the three zones have been competing in the Drivers’ World Championship (DWC) in London. 

The SEM has become a prestigious event for students from Asia and all over the world to test their creativity and innovation in the world’s energy challenges. This competition motivates students in Indonesia to participate. Finally, in 2016 and 2018, Indonesian teams successfully become world champions of SEM World (DWC). The achievements of the teams of Indonesian students have proved Indonesia’s reputation and demonstrated that Indonesia has high-quality human resources who can compete at an international level. Their innovations can inspire younger generations to innovate to create future energy solutions.
